Nice shots John. I wasn't impressed with the OM-D initially either when handling it in the store, but ended up swapping my D600 back for an OM-D for the size/weight part of the equation. I thought about the GH2/3 but wanted the weather sealing and IBIS. I figured I'd have to learn to deal with what felt like a fiddly, tiny-button, awkward-to-hold camera. I added the battery grip, used the camera for about a week, and now it's almost second nature. There are some little annoying things (the power button is ridiculous and hard to activate, for example), but generally I've gotten used to it quicker than I thought I might.
True, it will never be as nice as having all the external controls of my former Nikon SLR, but I carry the OM-D, Panny 7-14 (which is TINY for what it is), PanaLeica 25/1.4, Oly 45, and Oly 60 macro, all in about the same space and weight as my D800 with *one* prime only.
I still can't quite believe the weight and size difference. It's a revelation (especially considering the relatively small difference in IQ).
