Re: E-1 - temptated .. but what about 5 MP DETAIL ?!?

Here are a couple of images taken with a friend's E-1 + 14~54 MkI (borrowed from him before I bought mine ... ).

Needless to say, these are web sized images, and thus lose a considerable amount of their detail and presence because of the reduction in file size and pixel dimensions, and their conversion to sRGB for web use (as do all image files posted by anyone ... ).

I have printed the second image at A2 size, and one can easily see the individual strands of hair. They are very well defined.

Note that the point of focus is the tip of the brush, not the artiste's hair

This image has been printed at A2 size (17" x 22" nominal)

Hope these are of some help in your decision making process.

BTW, I very much like my E-1. Specially used with the 14~54 MkII and f/2 50 macro, but also with two kit lenses - 14~45 and 40~150 MkI, as well as with a variety of legacy manual focus lenses.
