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

Problem is the right edge
In reply to Randell Tober, Mar 13, 2013

I have medium size fat hands and have used the E-M5 both with and without the JB grip. The JB grip helps a little but I've had to sand off the edge at the front top of the JB grip to to keep it from digging into the bottom of my index finger. That helps a bit.

To me the basic problem with the camera is not the front grip. What is really needed is to make the right side of the camera 1/4 to 1/2 inch wider to fill the gap between the right edge of the camera and my hand at the inside base of my fingers. Filling that gap would reduce a lot of the fatigue when holding the camera for a long time.
