EM5 sluggish response

I just tried an EM5 - at last. It took Jessops days to charge up the display rack model's battery and they do not have any open boxes for demos.

I was almost convinced into buying one. However, despite being mostly impressed with the camera, I felt very strongly about the (un)responsiveness of the camera's OS. Aperture/shutter adjustment lagged badly behind turns of the control dials, and flicking in and out of menus and the info screen seemed to take up to a second.  The whole experience began to frustrate me very quickly.

Is this normal?

If it helps, the EVF update frequency was set to high. Does this affect the performance of the camera OS?
