No matter how good the E3 is the fact remains that the sensor real 
estate on a 4/3 format camera is only 1/4 the area of a 5D sensor.  That 
also means that a 13MP E3 has pixels that are only 1/4 the area of a 5D 
pixel.  I'm sure the E3 will have many wonderful qualities and I'm sure 
that I will be extremely envious of many of them.  But I'm afraid that 
high ISO noise to match the 5D won't be one of them.  The laws of 
physics can only be bent so far.
