Re: G5 vs OM-D for IQ and Ergonomics

I have the OM-D and love it, however I rarely complain about camera handling. One thing I can tell you though, is that it's not the easiest camera to hold, and the fact that it lacks such a pronounced grip it feels heavier than it actually is. I also have a superzoom camera, which is havier than the OM-D, but because it has a great deep grip it doesn't feel that way at all. So I guess the G5 would feel even lighter because of the grip (even though it weighs practically the same as the OM-D).
