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

I upgraded to an OM-G in November, and sold it in February, solely because of ergonomics.  The buttons were small, mushy (due to the weather proofing), tightly spaced, and two of them were placed in positions where I had to use the tip of a fingernail to depress them.  The camera is a brilliant machine, but it's retro styling never felt comfortable in my hands or handsome to my eyes.  Oly's other 16MP offerings are too tiny, so  I've decided to wait for the rangefinder styled e-p5, which hopefully will be available by mid-year.   In the meantime, I've purchased a gently used e-p3, and though it's about the same size as the OM-D, its layout is better suited to my big hands.  Jmho.
