Also, how did you find the new eyepiece, hopefully I'll find it better than the EM10 as it's probably my only gripe with the EM10? Finally, did it feel significantly heavier, or just a bit?
The shape of the camera grip is better than the E-M10, but like with all small cameras my little finger on my right hand had nowhere to go. The viewfinder is noticeably better than the 10 's and if I had planned a bit better I would have taken the 10 and taken longer to do a side-by-side comparison. This would have helped assess the weight too, but my gut feeling is it is only slightly heavier.
Maybe I could go back next week??
