I agree about that being questionable, but. . . idiotic?

I can appreciate the VF being considered 'bulky' for this particular styling, in that the eyecup and movable VF could confound what otherwise looks to be a relatively pocketable model, catching on cloth or seams (and maybe a bag). But that's a consideration of how one carries/utilizes their camera. I have more problems accessing my gear from the Thinktank bags than I do the deeper depth Billinghams, for example. The trade off is convenience and bulk of each bag.

On the other hand, it's the reviewer's opinion. Which is just as valid as yours and mine, so it should be accepted as such. We don't have to agree, but I think we should give the other perspective equal respect. It's not like the opinion was disrespect for your opinion and sensibilities, though your passionate reaction makes it sound like that's exactly what's irking you.

EVF adds bulk. It does. We all know that. I think the problem is that the GX7 is singled out as the one m43 camera that add bulk from it's EVF when cameras such as E-M1, E-M5 with their prism/hump and E-P5 (with VF4) does not add any bulk or at least not as much bulk as the GX7. The opinions are valid, certainly, but I think some would just ask for a little more consistency.
