So... I finally come to a decision to go with the OM-D... Is there any big hand users out there?

I medium to large hands. I have no problem with the E-M5 except for the following:

The |> and Fn1 buttons above the thumb support are too small. However I use my thumbnail to press them without much difficulty.

The one thing that drives me nuts is the on-off switch. The flange is too small and i wind up pressing the down button or just missing it entirely. That needs reworking. The solution there is to have auto turn off set for 4 hours. Then a half press of the shutter button brings the camera to life almost instantly so you only have to fool with the on off switch a few times a day. Buy spare batteries!

And the Mysets need redoing onto the Mode dial or better yet on the SCP!

I wrote Panasonic long ago and said I would not buy a camera without IBIS. That obviously didn't impress them much. The E-M5 IBIS is phenominal.
