Re: +1 non issue for me

No, playing with it in store probably won't help. I think most of us that say its a non-issue have found in real life that we don't need it. I turned the sensor off on my G1 for a week before I got the G3 last June to try it without and found I probably had never needed it.

With the GF1 I found it would have ben helpful because the EVF is so poor for review and I hated where the switch was on the side of the EVF--it was difficult to push without feeling you are pushing it a bit off the hot shoe. I can in all honesty say I have only used the switch on the G3 once since last June but YMMV and so I wouldn't want to say you will have the same experience.
