Yeah it definitely is.
The E-1 I find unsuited to a lot of stuff where any one of my other cameras can do certain better jobs, but it's still a great combination.

Re: My 'new' E-1

As you say...! The 1D is lightning fast (and sounds like a gatling gun!!), the clarity of the 1DS is amazing, even in mk2 form. The colour and convenience of the E1 has been great though, maybe I should've bought one years ago but everything has its time I guess. I am a radio amateur as well and love my older radios, the new ones do things better undeniably but the old gear will always be used. I guess thats why there continues to be a healthy market for old 35mm gear, now where did I leave my OM1?!
My greatest fear is after I am gone my wife will sell my 'toys' for what I told her I paid for them!

OM-1n with 28, 50, 100 & T32, E-10 (now deceased), E-1, E-3, EOS1ds mk2 with L glass, Fujifilm X100T
