510 DR a deal breaker? Options?

Up until the recent 510 review I had convinced myself to buy one (and a couple of upgraded lens). I still might because olympus offers lots of advantages. But probably not because I know me and I'm a real stickler for detail. So no doubt I'd be disappointed in highlight clipping / loss of shadow detail (especially considering that the money I'd be spending for the body and the upgraded lens is alot for me).

I know there are settings adjustments that can minimize the DR loss. But it appears to me that even in RAW mode the 510 has greater highlight clipping than the competition.

I like the olympus SLR advantages, so I may have to either wait until they solve the DR issue, or wait until another manufacturer gets better dust reduction, or just scrap the digital SLR notion completely.
Does the E3 suffer from the same DR issues?
