E-3 most reasonably priced 'Professional' camera

The E-3 is the most reasonably priced 'Professional' camera. For me a "Professional Camera, at a minimum, has the following characteristics.

High build quality

Weather sealing that works and a number of lenses available that also have weather sealing.

Excellent picture quality.

Excellent focus

High quality glass available

Fast operation

I don't know of any other DSLR in the E-3 price range that has all of these characteristics. The Nikon D300 comes close, but lacks good weather sealing and has few lenses available that are adequately weather sealed.
