I just arrived in japan and after dropping our luggage at the hotel I went straight to BIC Camera to play with the G1Xmk2.

Welcome to town.

On the mk2 this didn't work tried some settings in the store and am now back at the hotel. Just read the manual again an reread this post, but it seems like you can not make the control dial (the one on the back next to the display) to control anything?

Is it just used for browsing the menu?

You can use it to control a few things. I'd set it to control aperture.

I SO wanted to buy this camera, but these controls.... I don't know... Might hold out a bit and see what Sony (rx100 iii) and Nikon (p8000) come up with.

Do you care to go out for a drink / revisit BIC today? I'm free after 6pm.

Went to the E-Bay site for your G1X II. It says the sale was withdrawn by the seller because camera is no longer available.

Did you return it? sell to someone there?

Curious!
