Fancy an E-5?

I started off with an E-1, and whilst it got 'slagged-off' a lot by people - who thought the Mp count was too low, (Often by people who had never even used one!) or too expensive for the no of Mps, I found it an excellent camera and some of my images really 'hacked-off' Canon and Nikon APS-C users when I bought in 2006 the 7-14mm zoom; I think they are still waiting for a comparable optic (114 degrees across the frame - not diagonally, which is 'Cheating'!) I bought an E3 soon after it appeared, but still have and use the E-1 because it's a lot less obtrusive. Tempted to go for the E5, but I don't need video (dabbled with video some years ago and it's just not my 'thing') so I suppose I will wait until a newer version appears.
The only niggles i have with the E3 are the DOF button which doesn't sit high enough the body (but have found a way of solving that!) and the On/Off button, which feels to me as if it operates the wrong way round, have a more pronounced size and could be better positioned. The ultrasonic 'dust-busting' system is superb, still haven't had any dust on the E1 or E3's sensors or viewfinder screens, even though I've changed optics in some pretty risky places.What puzzles me, is why is it that while the image quality of the m4/3rds cameras is highly regarded, an yet it's 4/3rds sibling, isn't admired as much? It is after all, nigh-on the same sensor!
