Re: Reception for the 1.3 looks pretty hostile...

I'm left eyed.
I do this on the GM5.  It's intensely annoying, clunky, and awkward, but the GM5 is a miracle of tinyness so I put up with it.
On a "real' camera I have the touchscreen off and, more often than not, the screen folded in for protection.
I don't like touchscreens.

He means what Panasonic calls “TouchPad AF”, where you shift the focus point WHILE USING the EVF.

It couldn’t be more intuitive!

It couldn't be more annoying, everytime my nose touches the screen the focus point moves. Disabled it on all three of my Panasonic cameras, in fact one of the first things I do on a new one.

That’s too bad. I never had that problem with the GX8, but I tend to tilt the EVF up a bit. The left side EVF probably helps, too.
