R5 + RF 100-500 Knuckle Tight Fit?

After having waited since June I just picked up an RF 100-500 at my local dealer for use with my R5. I've discovered that the knuckles of my right hand barely fit in the gap between the lens barrel and the handgrip on the R5 without gloves on, and when I put gloves on there is contact between my third and fourth fingers and the barrel of the lens. I've only been playing around with the camera/lens combination for a couple of hours and it doesn't seem to be a problem, but I wonder if it will become a problem when I am out for the day taking lots of photos.

Has anyone else noticed how small the clearance is between the handgrip of the R5 and the barrel of the lens -- and is it a problem for you?

(With an EF 100-400 II lens the adapter and the lens don't have this problem because the barrel diameter is smaller.)
