Upgrade E-3 to E-5? Worth it?


I'm currently using the E-3 and a bunch of ZD (7-14, 12-60, 50-200 and 50 macro). I shoot mostly landscapes, but also portraits, street, architecture and macros.

I'm happy with the results of this setup, but, unfortunately, I played with some E-5 files and I'm wowed by the resolution I can get. For landscape, it would be really welcomed.

On the other side, it seems that the E-5 files are noisier at base ISO than the E-3 files.

Now, the idea of upgrading is growing on me. So I wolud like to ask those who have upgraded from the E-3 to the E-5 :

Is it worth it, form an image quality POV? Are you satisfied with the upgrade?

Thanks in advance for helping
