Indeed. I think it's telling that if we could clone our solar system, stick it many light years away, and astronomers were able to detect Venus from this distance it'd be the most Earth-like planet we've ever found.
It's rocky, close to the same size and mass, same type of star as Earth's, and it's right on the inner edge of the star's habitable zone . . . yet being able to make direct observations we know that Venus is a hellish rock with no chance to harbor life.
Don't get TOO excited when we find "Earth-like" planets.
