Probably something like, "I've told you a thousand times... <insert your favorite nag here>"

I have to repeat what everyone said by now, very nice pictures and colors.
Shows that the E-1 was and still is a mighty tool (in the right hands).

How did you find the AF compared to the E3/5 ? The reason I ask is that for me the E1's AF seemed to be a lot more assured when focusing which surpised me esp as I haven't used it in anger for quiet some time. It snaps straight into focus even when the battery was flashing red and that it was low on juice.

I do want to dispell the myth that the E3/E5 is a bigger camera than the E1... their is effectively no real difference other than the increased size of the OVF and the hump. Other than that they are nearly identical in width, height and depth. They both feel good in your hand - Oly improved the grip and the shutter speed dial on the E3/E5 right but the E1's thumb rest, the rear grip shape and the location of the on/off switch on the mode dial is ergonomic perfection thats something you do notice as soon as you pick it up. I also think that having the lens mount further to the left adds to the E1's useability but I can see why Oly made the change on the e3\E5. On top of that its quiet a pretty camera which I cant really say about the E3/5 .. ooh and that made in "japan sticker " helps as well!

Cheers Harj
Hi Harj,

I agree with you about the AF speed of the E3/E5, it is faster but not always accurate, with the E1 is very slow but when it lock the focus it is spot on..!

There are some limitation with the E1 like the buffer size, AF tracking, noise, etc but the color rendition and 3D effect of the E1 is what make of this camera special.

I have two batteries and that day I grabbed the one with out power and when I turned on the camera I noticed the red light announcing the low battery... I shoot more than 3 hours with it.

I notice also the files from the E1 are very easy to handle in PP with out loosing too much IQ.

It is a nice camera and some of my best pictures are coming from it.

Have a great day.

Marcelo

I still see listings from time to time for used E-1s on Craiglist. It's the one Oly
camera that I would still like to have.

These images remind me of that fact.

Thank you Zig, I was very lucky to have those swallows very close to me and posing for my E1.

Hi Ted,

I'm glad you like it... I think she is saying:

"Stop pretending to be a model, posing for this guy is not going to give us seeds for tonight's dinner..!!"
