I have it and absolutely love it! Sadly, I have to get a new camera because I need more than 6 mps now. If only the H2 had 10mp! I think I'm getting the R1.

Has anyone experienced problems with the ergonomics with the H5?

I've read that some people have experienced pressing different buttons by mistake, because of the large LCD, is this a problem?

Would like to know because I want to buy one!!

I went out on Tue chasing down a Sony H2 because I also read about the ergonomics on the H5 and hitting the buttons by mistake,and where I live they only had the H5 in stock, so that was it I now have the H5, after unpacking and playing with it for 3 hours I soon learnt how to hold the camera without accidently hitting the buttons, so I would not worry about it, mind you, Sony could have placed the menu and button above it in a better position.

The trick here is to leave the adapter on all the time with auv filter and hold the the camera by the adapter with your left hand and the button problem is easily controlled, the other advantage with this setup is the lens does notbring in dust when retracted, hope this helps.

I agree with Wirraway-

I am a very pleased H-5 owner. Initially, or when attempting to operate with my right hand only, you can inadvertently hit unwanted buttons. However, it is easy to learn how to avoid that after using the camera for awhile.

I hit the menu button by mistake every once in a while when using the camera, but you get used to the feel pretty quickly and it's really not that bad.
