Thanks Advent1sam,

Interesting comments. The A6000/55-210/DH1758 combo actually costs a little less than the E1 body. I guess there's no doubt that the A6000 combo would be better for BIF, and it focuses almost as fast as the E5. I love the Olympus S-AF+MF setting for overriding auto focus which often focuses on background or other high contrast points, especially when the background or foreground is busy such as a bird in a tree. Does the A600/55-210/DH1758 have the same ability to use the focus ring to easily override auto focus? I have read others who were slightly disappointed after upgrading from the E5 to E1. How about the less expensive E10?
