I'm with you. I bought an E-510 with ZD14-54 new, my first experience with
Oly products. I bought some Leica-R lenses because I have used Leica
products for more than fifty years. Looking for a backup body, I found an
E-1 that I could afford. Now, my most used combo is the E-1 with various
Leica lenses. Like you, for my purposes, the resolution of the E-1 CCD
sensor is fine, and the camera is a pleasure to use.
