Getting a good grip on the G3

Finally having a chance to give the G3 a good workout on a trip to New Mexico and Arizona and finding it hard to get a good grip on the camera when using the 45-200. Try as I might to avoid it, I find that the most comfortable grips when using the EVF end up with my unintentionally pressing one of the buttons on the back of the camera with some part of my hand. Am interested in anyone out there with large hands who has found a way to avoid this annoyance. It's easy to have a solid grip on the lens with my left hand but hard to have a solid grip on the camera with my right that doesn't end up hitting some button I'd rather not hit. Never had this problem with my G1.

Thanks!
