we have recently compared ES to Solr to estimate the effort of evolving 
our search infrastructure (it was game like: two teams tried to "sell" 
each software to the other one)

the ES team in the end has found it good as a storage but difficult to 
extend for a lucene expert. the Solr one provided some extension 
examples and argued that raw lucene API access was easier. Solr was "sold"

Hope it's clear how relative this analysis was WRT to the quality of the 
teams and the time they had for the evaluation, but we are extending 
solr ATM, so we hope not to have missed the point completely
