Which one of these produces the more realistic pipe organ sound?

I wish to expand the scope of this question to include the Roland V Piano, the Allen L-452, Allen LL-325Q, and the Lowrey Marquee EX5000 in pursuit of the best synthesized pipe organ sound of all.

Mirror mirror on the wall, what is the greatest electric organ of them all?

I would consider a midi module on a lower cost digital piano.

Why? Because of changing technology. It changes so fast that you drop some big bucks on a fancy new organ and after the model is discontinues, you suddenly discover that parts are unobtanium. Now, of course that's not an issue if the thing never breaks, but I have seen some impressive units scrapped because of parts issues.

You can, of course go for some really big bucks for a unit such as an allen. When parts are no longer available for those, they often have an upgrade you can do to replace the obsolete stuff. But the upgrades are not cheap, either.

This is why I say go for a digital piano with midi and hook a module to it. If it goes bad and you can't get parts, then you're not out as much money..
