Hey kids,

After the disappointment with the E-M5 and E-P5 I started to wonder if Olympus would ever design a camera with decent ergonomics. Hopefully Oly will take a look at Samsung's new Galaxy NX mirrorless camera, which has nailed some of the layout features the E-M5 should have had, namely:

- EFV placed towards the left

- Built-in flash (yes, it can be done Oly, even when there's an EVF) with additional hotshoe

- A nice, deep grip with (presumably) a large battery inside while retaining a slim body

The main problem with the Samsung is that it lacks room for physical controls. However, that's because it has an enormous 4.3 inch display. Knock that puppy down to 3 inches, add some dials and buttons, and Bob's your uncle.

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.

Yours in advance of being flamed,

That is one ugly camera, Scott.

...just saying...

Well, in the same league as the OMD,with this protruding hump.
But here at least the hump is not only mistaken ornament but has a function (hotshoe plus built in flash).
