E-10 .. not really ?

I have to set the scene by making it clear that I own an Oly 3000 , (still kept since the G1 arrived) am a big enthusiast for their digis and certainly in the 'general' class they are much under-rated and indeed a super camera ... BUT, I must disagree on the suggested E-10 alternative. Excellent as it may be, it has a fixed lens and that alone takes it out of the true pro class. I think it IS a fine camera but as to whether it is worth TWICE the price (here in UK anyway) of the G1 I very much doubt. I just don't know what is the true next stage up from the G1 - the REAL pro jobs are not perfect and anyway are three times the price. Maybe we haven't seen just where the 'G1 category' camera is going yet - later in the year perhaps ??

I own a couple of Canon Digi Cams (S100 and the G1) both are
inferior to the shear quality of the Oly E-10. Especially since
you are a pro why not by pro or semi pro gear...

PS. I do enjoy both of my Canons however but I dont attempt to use
them like they are pro rig...
