I don't have a choice and I'm OK with that.

I don't have a choice.  I have to stay with Olympus, if for no other reason than my wife, my oldest daughter, her husband, one of my nephews, and a good friend all have 4:3 or micro 4:3 cameras and I'm the one they borrow stuff from, like lenses, flash, etc.  

Not only that, but I have 2 OM cameras, 6 lenses, and 3 telescopes that I use for astrophotography.  With adapters, I can connect my OM lenses and telescopes to my E-1 and E-5.  Changing systems would require new adapters and that's more stress than I want to take on right now.  

Oh, and I happen to really like my E cameras and full suite of HG lenses (I also have the 40-150 MkI and 35 macro).  It comes down to this:  I have a very rugged and very weather sealed kit that is much better at photography than I am.  Except in a couple of areas I would gain nothing by switching systems and I would lose more than I would gain.
