Thanks for investing your time for this interesting read. I would agree with some of your points, IF I would be shooting with one hand only. Since I nearly never do that (and I do not understand why apparently quite a few on the boards do), as I always hold the camera by the lens, some of your points are moot. I agree though that a too cramped/false position of important "knobs" is a not so good idea (especially if there is enough real estate to do it (theoretically) better).

Mind you, I do not own the OM-D, but the E-600 & 12-60. There, even after 2 years of shooting I still did not get used to the position of the info/menu buttons. Probably a few issues will get ironed out in the E-M5 rev 2, hopefully.

Cheers
