And E1 uses comparing it to the E1 and saying wow - great but makes no sense, it is bound to be better.

I have a smoregageboard of choices that I could go for, and it is not a case of all the new cameras being better than my E-1 in every way. Anything but the E-5 is a downgrade in construction quality, sealing, and dust busting. Only the E-5 is a major upgrade for my Zuiko lenses without downgrading the things I love about my E-1 system. The comparison to the E-1 doesn't have to make sense to you, but it makes perfect sense to me. All the new cameras beat the E-1 handily in high ISO shooting, but only the E-5 beats does so without loss of important features that are priorities to me, and while I'm comparing the E-5 to the E-1, I'm simultaneously comparing it to the new kids on the block.

Cheers,
Seth
