Teslib, I will definately come back (if indeed I decide to leave) but I just feel they are not quite there yet, and if I am going to spend £1000 on a camera then I want to keep it for 5 plus years! The one thing I am very tempted to do is pick up a very cheap xe1 and hold on to the small lenses, like the 18 and the 35, for now...

I think that this is a worthwhile idea, as there will be times when a heavier and larger DSLR would not be the best camera for the task.  Keeping the small lenses will mean that your kit will be great for travel, where size and weight are paramount and the feature set is adequate, if not quite equal to the top of the line X cameras.

The X-E1 is a real bargain right now, as so many users are ditching it for the X-T1.
