That's a pretty impressive job of a mockup.  To me it doesn't look hard to hold from your photo... but I await holding one in person to see.  I think for instance using the rear D-Pad is something you'd be doing with two hands anyway, and it seems like the design is swept back to make the wheels easier to access.

The camera is wide I think for a few reasons:

1) A battery that large would have made the current DP-M body thicker.

2) Keeps electronics farther from sensor.

3) Better dissipation of heat.

4) Overall design can be much thinner.
