Since I was considering the move to one of the OMD's to pair with the 12-40 lens, I went to a camerastore just to feel this machine in my hands. Though the camera was encapsulated by an anti theft contraption, from the very first moment I held it, it was clear that it is a very, very tiny piece of machinery. I can not see myself balancing this combo with my hands. My hart broke that very moment. This was 2 days ago and I'm still not fully recovered. So I call for the help of owners of the OMD to tell me 1)if they are able to balance the OMD/12-40 combo with their hands and 2) if they think their hands are bigger or smaller than mine. I hope this will bring a new perspective on such an important issue. I have uploaded a picture of my (left) hand with a Duracell AA as a reference.
