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

OMD: power switch perfectly placed!

I want to contradict your complaint about the power switch.

I operate the power switch blind while handling the camera (means not-shooting). Using the outline of the camera as reference this switch operates perfectly when you use the nail of your thumb.

Since I do not intend to operate the switch in shooting position (what for?!??) it makes perfect sense to me to place it where you cannot reach during shooting.

This approach frees space for buttons which I do need during shooting.
But all these complaints will lead to less ergonomic placement with the next design of Olympus. Ah, well, I will not be able to afford a replacement anyway...
