    Trying to find a good picture(s) of a partially gripped OM-D next to a non-gripped GH3, and then both fully gripped. I really like my OM-D but I am finding my hand cramping up a bit after holding it for longer periods, I wish it was just a tiny bit bigger. The GH3 seems to have a little better ergonomics but from some picturea it looks huge next to a ungripped OM-D.

    That's great thanks, not sure why I couldn't find that one googling yesterday.

    The GH3 is hugely more comfortable and ergonomic to use than the non gripped OM-D IMO

    I am glad to see it is not as much larger than the omd as I had been led to believe. I think I may get one.

    GH3 is pretty much as big as the smaller Four Thirds Bodies :smile:

    Its about as big as a Rebel or D3200 but with much more buttons and better ergonomics.

    Personally,
    I think that if Panasonic created one with a Four Thirds mount, they'd make a killing off folks still waiting for an E-5 replacement..:jedi:

    My grip almost never leaves my OM-D, so looking at those pictures the size difference is minimal. Now I just have to find a GH3 somewhat local to try out the EVF (I wear glasses and some seem to have issues), and then decide if I want to give up IBIS.

    If you ever trek down south across the border, you can try mine.

    ..and still much nicer to hold and use than the gripped OM-D IMHO.
