Oly, I promise that when you bring out a camera with this layout (and 5-way IBIS) then I will, at last, upgrade my E-P3.

Samsung does not have IBIS of any kind, and I like this.

4.3" EVF is its main contribution to the party along with Android connectivity.  Figures that the maker of the Galaxy S4 would finally introduce a gloriously large screen to the population that is most in need of this, photographers.

We spend our time composing images while squinting at  3" screens, or in the case of the E-PM/PL series, 2.4" usable screen areas in 4:3's native format, ridiculous in this day.  And strikingly small to those both coming over from current generation smart phones as well as those with aging eyes, two very large demographic groups.  An instant "fail" for many in both I'm sure.

A 4" flip/touch screen would be a very nice feature to have;  Oly/Pan should look closely at this, in this respect it represents the future (I hope!).
