R1 vs 40D/D300/E3

After two years' happy ownership of an R1 I'm thinking whether to get one of the new breed of DSLRs as dust protection (IMHO the DSLR's Achilles' heel) seems to have moved on considerably, and there are times when I'd like to use a more extreme focal length or shoot fast-moving objects or work in low light.

I've narrowed it down to the 40D, D300 and E3. There are impassioned arguments about the relative merits of these cameras, but when it comes to image quality, how do they compare to the R1? If anyone has undertaken any side-by-side comparisons I'd be interested to know what they showed.
