With the 14-42, it really is well balanced in the hand. The E-1 with
14-54 is also another near-perfect combination. Very different, but
both just feel right.

Thanks. I thought I had another local source for one so I didn't say
anything, but it fell through. With stuff going on at work, I didn't
have a chance to really deal with it.

Understood. The E-3 has the early two-axis IBIS too and it is easily
overwhelmed. The GX85's IBIS (especially in combination with the OIS)
is almost like using a gimbal. I use a Canon for church video work
that has OIS and it's about as primitive as the opening scene of Space
Odyssey 2001.

The Kodak CCD sensors (E-1, E-300, E-400) are certainly dealing with
this odd Alaskan light better than the other cameras. Interior
low-light, high-ISO is another kettle of fish, but that's not what I'm
dealing with.
