I know your pain, Chris

I use an E-PL3 which is grat in many respects -- I want small and light -- BUT when I am doing stuff with flash on the camera -- the FL50 which is big compared with the camera itself -- things get clumsy and it is all too easy to inadvertently switch the flash off with pressing the control wheel side nearest the right hand (from the back) edge.

And if you’ve lined up a bunch of people or simply got just one person where you want them at last, it's not good.

I'm looking at upgrading to the G5 which in fact is no bigger or heavier than the fully outfitted "little" E-PL3 but has vastly superior ergonomics.

That same mention in the review gave me pause, though. Hmmm.

Cheers, geoff
