So... I finally come to a decision to go with the OM-D... Is there any big hand users out there?

I have large hands, and I've used my OMD with and without the Oly grip, while not perfect it's ergonomics are working for me, the camera being roughly the same size as my (very) old (real) SLR.

This being said, as I don't wear it around my neck (I use the Oly strap as wrist strap) I mostly use WITH the grip when I know I'll be using it for several hours, as it is more comfortable for the hand on long sessions. But otherwise for casual shooting works well without it.

Another pro for the grip is when working in cold and/or wet weather it offers a more secure grip.

I also chose the OMD because of the IBIS, I'm still amazed at the long exposure I can get away with, really useful in those occasions when you don't have your tripod with you.

A mind is like a parachute, it works better when open.
