Re: Thinking of getting the EM1.

I was going from an E-3 to the E-M1 so it was really a no-brainer.
One comparison observation that I can make is that I always thought that the E-3 was a touch too big in my small hands and I sometimes got a bit of cramp (I only used the grip on occasions). Now I find the E-M1 a touch small and the bit of my palm opposite my thumb needs somewhere to rest. Although the 'base' E-M1 is lovely and small, I find that the use of the grip solves the problem I encounter. The grip is definetly useful for the larger 4/3rds lenses anyway.

E-M1 Mk2, Pen F, HLD-9, 17, 25, 45, 60 macro, 12-40 Pro, 40-150 Pro, 12-50, 40-150, 75-300, MC-14, MMF-3 (all micro 4/3rds), 7-14 (4/3rds), 50, 135 (OM), GoPro Hero 3, Novo/Giottos/ Manfrotto supports. Lowepro, Tamrac, Manfrotto, and Billingham bags.
