Those are some very nice shots. I have zero doubt that the E-1 can deliver fantastic images with my larger glass. Truth be told, I probably will mount all my lenses on the E-1 at some point.

The only reason I say the 50mm and the 25mm will be the primary lenses on my E-1 is that I want it to be relatively small, easy to carry, and not too expensive in case I decide to go after a great image in a bad situation (like walking through a daytime rain storm, standing in front of oncoming traffic, taking beach photos while I'm waist deep in the ocean, or asking homeless people if I can take their portraits in dark alleys).

I've actually done all four of those things with the E-3 and various lenses, but I'd be even more adventurous in my photography if I wasn't worried about my gear.
