I actually sold my E600 to get an E 1, absolutely no regrets here.

Re: Are they really worth getting ?

I have an E-1 on the way as a kind of replacement for the old E-10's I have used for a number of years. I was tempted to get an E-20p so I could re-use the add on lenses but the E-1 just looked too tempting! Initially it will be used with a 'cheapo' 17.5-35mm but shall be upgrading for a good 'walk around' lens as soon as funds permit! Now what do you reckon chaps? 14-54 or 12-60 for the E-1 (big price difference though).

The 14-54 sits well on it.

14-54 all the way. I still use mine on the E-M5, a very capable lens.

I would go for the extra wide and distance of the 12-60 (if I did not have the 14-54 that is)

Re: Are they really worth getting ?

Or you could keep a lookout for the Panaleica 14-50mm that shipped with the L10.
It isn't quite as bright as the one that shipped with the L1, but it's often a darned sight cheaper.
You forego weather sealing, but gain Image Stabilisation. Depend where your priorities lie really, but if you don't venture out in the rain, the OIS helps obviate the lack of a decent ISO performance.

Re: Are they really worth getting ?

Thanks for the reply everyone. I seem to have obtained a 14-54mm, fortuitously it has an E-1 attached to it....! D'oh!! That means two E-1-s, I may end up selling one..., or then again...,
