The Olympus E-1 is a P&S? That seems a bit condescending.

Actually if a camera was just a box why would we be here or be off
shooting the ubiquitous Eos's. Or in BD's case an Olympus E1 digital
point and shoot.

We're here because we feel our usual choice of of low tech non SLR gear
with premium glass makes a difference.

Ask a photographer if choice of gear makes any difference and they'll
look at you like you're crazy. Of course it does.
