XT-1 - not as impressed as everybody else.

Well I was really looking forward to X-T1 based on reviews.
But I am not enthused due to ergonomic deficiencies:

- the EV comp dial is too big and edge not chamfered enough.  So its uncomfortable to hold camera  / get chafing on index finger.  It maybe my method of holding camera needs to be adjusted, but on X-E1/2 I had got into the habit of index finger reaching of EV comp dial to shutter.
- most buttons are recessed/too small. especially the 4 way controller.
- there is a small lip on LHS of LCD to allow it to be tilted. Unfortunately it catches side of my nose.  It maybe noticeable as its not rangefinder style (EVF on left) that I have got used to. Also I notice the OMD SLR style cameras EVF sticks out further at back.
But I do like the EVF.
