Olympus menu button...very frustrating since they moved it.
11

My frustration with the move of the menu button to the left side (E-M1X, E-M1mk III) continues unabated.

Holding a heavy telephoto lens, but needing to do some menu diving, is difficult when using the EVF.  I cannot access the menu button while holding the camera up to my eye.  If I take it down and press the menu button, I see the menu pop up in the EVF.  But if the Eye Sensor is enabled, bringing the camera back up to my eye results in the menu being closed.

The only way to work this is to turn off the Eye Sensor.  Which will result in  increased battery use.
