I still think the OP's title is a bit misleading. I totally agree the E-1 was aimed at pros but I don't think the 4/3rd sensor was. I think the sensor was a result of Olympus predicting what would provide the comsumer with a logical size platform to achieve good results... at that time. If professonals bought into it it would reinforce the platform so the E-1 was introduced as the flagship. The two are mutually inclusive. You build a platform you think will sell to the masses and to reinforce that you need to attract pros to verify the platform is viable...therefore you introduce it with the E-1.
