Not really. There are way more than a handful of crop cameras out there that put the E-cameras to shame at ISO 400 and up WITHOUT any noise control.  You can shoot an oldie like the Canon 10D at ISO 800 and still see relatively clean images.  You can shoot the newer Canons and Nikons and shoot all day long at ISO 3200 without worry.  The noise in the E-series has been the line's Achilles Heel since Day One.  For shooters (like me) that shoot ISO 400 and below, they are wonderful cameras.  For others, they are dinosaurs ...
