As I do not own a E-5 to compare to the E-1 and presume you do have a E-1 to compare I'll take your word for it David.

As to the eye cup you must be one of the lucky ones as there as been no end of posts about how easy it comes off.

One day I hope to be the person my dogs think I am.

Re: E-3 or new lense for E-1 for close ups?

As a sequal as I started this thread some time ago, I bought a 50mm macro which is fantastic, I have also aquired a 510 which I use mainly with the 50mm lense for close ups as they seem well balanced and keep the E 1 for a walk about camera for general shots, Thanks for all those that replied
