On the apparent upcoming high end OMD that will "dub" as the 4/3rds hybrid

Re: I suspect at minimum an E-4X0 sized body

The ergonomics of this camera are going to matter a great deal.  It ideally needs to be at least the size of an OM body to be remotely comfortable with Olympus's larger lenses.  I'm not to concerned about balance - no matter how big the body, there's always a bigger lens :-).  However, the current OMD is simply far too small.  I think that's the first thing people note, when they see an OMD in 'in the flesh' for the first time.

Let's face it, had the GH3 come with super fast AF for legacy lenses, we'd already be there.
