E1 Outdoor Camera Improvement

I'm looking at getting some of the PoE cameras, however I would prefer to have a couple with pan/tilt and zoom functionality. The RLC-423 is quite expensive and it's actually makes more sense for me to get two cameras rather than a single RLC-423 instead.
Until I saw the E1 Outdoor model! The advertising media about it looks really good, and it also has a network port instead of using it solely as a Wifi camera. The only let down, it's not Power over Ethernet, and it needs to have a separate power line
For me, I would much prefer this camera over the RLC-423, not because it's about half the price, but it also looks more appealing and has nicer features, but putting in a separate powerpoint close enough in the roof is going to be a bit tricky. If it could have a PoE interface, then it would be the perfect option, I'm not really sure why the PoE option is so much more expensive than the other cameras? I'm still thinking which way to go with my camera choices now, as it's going to be a compromise, but I don't think it's worthwhile spending that much more for a single camera:
- get two 520's to cover the area
- get an E1 Outdoor but then need to have a separate powerpoint within reach
- get the RLC-423, more than twice the cost of the previous options
Is this something that Reolink might consider changing in future?
