I'm not a machine-gunner, so battery changes never impinge on my stills photography.
The only time I worry about battery is when recording lengthy videos: then the tension mounts as the battery level goes down, especially if continuity is important (e.g. music or a long speech).
I'm sure removing the handgrip is no harder than removing a tripod plate.

The EVF has three different view modes, as well as two refresh rates, by default it's on the slower refresh rate.
Thanks Josh. Haven't got around to configuring the EVF as yet. I expect it's in the (PDF only) manual. I think I'd better print some of it out!
Hooray....... Adobe have updated ACR to support the OM-D. See here.
Quite a few other new cameras added too.

Definitely recommend fiddling with the mode (I have chosen traditional SLR style - rather than "all over the place") and setting the higher refresh rate. And cleaning off the thin film of muck I didn't realise was on the viewfinder glass!
All makes makes a huge difference.
What do you make of the tilting screen CB, I preferred this setup like on the E330 to the fully articulated screen on the E3.

I think it has potential as a waist-level finder for street-shooting etc. Used it today to take a shot where the camera was pointing directly downwards.

I'd like it to be fully rotating as I tend to shoot a lot of low level stuff in portrait mode and having it move in one direction doesn't help, but it's better than having a fixed screen.

Erm, I think it moves in two?
And what of the eye sensor by the viewfinder, I found it annoying on the G2 so switched it off in the menus, found it would often switch of the rear screen switching to viewfinder at the most awkward of times while using the rear screen
CB does the screen also move the other way for over head shots as well.

??? That's one direction. (the two directions being horizontal and vertical - not up and down)

Yes that's the top pic in CBs illo above
That`s good enough for me then

It's just an issue if you shoot in portrait mode
