I couldn't disagree more...

Everything's a matter of personal preference, but I find the GH3 is vastly superior in handling compared to my departed E-M5. Not every button is an easy reach, but there are so many more direct controls and they're all reprogrammable. The main command dials are far superior (particulary the rear one), the grip is much more comfortable and secure, and the LCD articulation is easier and more versatile. The touch screen interface on the Panasonic works very well and doesn't require a stupid back-and-forth interaction with a body button that makes the E-M5's touch integration a real pain. The GH3's not perfect, but it's far and away a better handling camera than the E-M5. Personal opinion, of course.
