If your E-1 successor has to have a mirror, then I can't see a better APS-C body than the Pentax K-5(II). Just don't forget there is nothing like 12-60 and 50-200 Zuikos in Pentax world.

The Pentax DA*60-250mm is fully the equal of the 50-200. Read the reviews at Photozone.

Pentax needs a premium extended zoom, but there is one showing in the roadmap, hopefully out this year. I think where Pentax beats up on Olympus zooms is in the availability of more weather-resistant choices, especially in lower price ranges.
