Re: G5 vs OM-D for IQ and Ergonomics

OM-D is way behind G5 in terms of ergonomics. Buttons are very tightly settled and stand out too much, the grip is a joke, brick design is sexy and stylish but painful to hold. I was also surprised by how badly the right strap ring is placed, it just hurts when I hold OM-D.

However, IS on OM-D is just amazing, it was literally challenging for me to make a blurry shot with this camera.

More importantly, I'm not sure if it's fair to compare a 600 dollar camera to a 1000 dollar one.
