    Not so much with the P20mm, but the O45 is so svelte as to be difficult to handle.

    I was still in the driver seat (luckily) of my vehicle when I decided to change from the P20 to the O45. As I just finished placing the rear cap on the P20, I grasped the O45 from the bag and it slipped between my fingers and onto my lap. Whew!

    There is not much to hold on to. I was thinking of VERY judiciously applying thin strips of skateboard tape to the sides to aid in grasping it.

    Anyone else find this a growing problem?

    Any solutions to share?

    I never experience that before. The m4/3 lens is small enough to be grasped by our hand. Try to change the lens this way : Taking Care of Your Mirrorless Camera Sensor - YouTube

    To twist the oly 45mm to the mount is harder though..mine is e-p3 I don't know about the other body. It's very very very tight
