Personally, I want a Sony sensor in an updated E1 body.

I would love that too... considering how Oly generally love to shrink everything the E3/E5 body shape is a bit of an enigma.

m4/3rds have excellent bodies (in terms of file generation ... CAF, AF on long lenses and handling is still behind) but their lenses are shadows of 4/3rds lenses.

I can see where you're coming from... it sometimes seems that while trying to create the 'one beautiful system' they've ended up more fragmented than ever.

It's interesting that so far the "high grade" m43 lenses have all been primes, but I do think that if we ever see Oly producing HG m43 zoom lenses it would signal that they've given up trying to sort out the focusing issues of 43 lenses on m43 bodies. (The Panasonic 12-35 does look very nice but it's too expensive for me at the moment.)

I know it's very un-trendy but personally I have no problem with using a decent zoom...
