Artistic quality?  Totally dependant on the photographer.
Technical quality?  Highly likely!  I find that I shoot 20x the
pictures with the digitals than I did with film. My edit process
is pretty ruthless so I end up with the same number of pictures
in the end, but they are much better than my one-offs on film.

I've had mine for a few weeks now, and it's getting there.  I do
miss the IMAX theatre viewfinder, though.  However, there is
something REALLY special about the OM cameras.

For B&W I totally agree, however, for color photography I get
MUCH more satisfaction tweeking my shot than sending it out for
somebody else to trash it.

I'm a convert. After today's field trip with the E-1 and my
ancient, SC Zuikos I'm very excited about photography again.  I
bought mine (with 14-54) for about $1K USD.  It was, without a
doubt, the best thousand bucks I've spent this month.
