Switching from OM-D E-M5 to XE-1? Am I mad?

OK, I love the images my E-M5 produces but am not happy with it's size! In particular I find it not wide enough for my large (ish) hands (I'm 6'5"). Then they come out with an even smaller camera the E-M10. I have the chance to buy a virtually new XE-1 and like the proportions and manual controls but am I just being silly. I really loved my OM-2n when I used to shoot film from 1980 to 2003 and would have loved the OM-D to be similar in proportion but well hey it isn't. I only have the 12-50 kit lens, the Panasonic 20mm, the Olympus 40-150 and a few manual OM lenses so wouldn't loose too much that way.

What do the Fuji people think?
