1) That Olympus is right in their statement that the OM-D is not really a "professional" camera

2) That Olympus really does need come out with at least one, and preferably more than one new bodies that have larger, more ergonomic controls and VF

3) That such bodies, even the biggest of them should be significantly smaller and lighter than the E-3/E-5, preferably more or less Pentax K size, which also happens to be E-1 sized.

The OP did indeed make the right choice: he chose the camera that felt and worked best in his hands. That is how I chose my E-1 in 2004/

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.

K30 seems a fine camera. The lens will seemingly hobble it. It's like the Zuiko 18-180 big FL but not a not quality lens. I suppose once you get back you can get better lens for it but it seems a shame to go the Galapagos Islands with that lens.
