A77 front control dial - anyone else have this happen?
Oct 13, 2012

My A77 is sitting in Laredo service center right now. The 'rubber' around the control dial split. Seems to me that this should be a bit more durable. The A700 also has a rubberized grip on the dial, though my A350 is all plastic. I don't shoot any more with the A77 than with the A700, but I do shoot more manual and use the dials more. Freak incident or should I expect it again in a year?

Here's the photo of the damage:
