It doesn't appear to be much smaller than the E-420 but at that size even small differences can be significant. It's much better than the E-420 with regard to control layout IMO.

I could be tempted, I like the red one

This is much, much better than I was expecting, definately not a point & shoot. I'll be following this one very closely
The front adjustment wheel is particularly nice as it's a toggle switch too - press it to swap between shutter and aperture modes
