Is there an optical difference between the Swarovski ELs and SLCs, or is it all ergonomics, magnesium housing, etc?

There is a difference in the optics. The ELs have a bit more contrast, have a bit better color rendition, and have a bit less color fringing. These differences are due to better lens coatings. I would not consider the EL worth the extra $500 based on optics alone.

The EL's are also lighter and seem to have a slightly deeper depth of field (my observation).  I have read in some threads that the EL's can have problems with the hinge, and generally wear out sooner than the the SLC's.  The SLC's still have a first class view
