EVF adds bulk? Really?

Well, from a technical point of view this is correct but it's listed as a con...yet this isn't listed as a con for E-M5, E-M1 or even E-P5 (if used with VF4).

I mean, yes, the EVF sticks out the back a little but not much different from the E-M5 or E-M1 and it certainly doesn't have that huge prism/hump, adding much bulk to the Oly's. And compared to the monstrosity that is the VF4 on the E-P5... Course, you can justifiably say the E-P5 doesn't count because it doesn't come with a built-in EVF so it shouldn't be judged for it's bulk if using the VF4...in which case, why isn't the lack of an EVF not a con?

I suppose I'm being nit picky but it seems from DPR's standpoint, the added bulk of the EVF on the GX7 to be much more of a problem than most other ILC's...just seems odd.

Am I just off my rocker on this?
