LX5 Thumbwheel problems
For the second time, the thumbwheel on my LX5 needs to be replaced. It seems that with long use, the wheel eventually stops being able to increment/decrement settings. Right now it is stuck at -3ev exposure compensation and can not be changed. In manual mode, it is not possible to change the shutter or f stop.
I never had this problem with my lx3 (with the joystick. I think that dirt and lint gets drawn down into the mechanism and jams it up somehow. Probably poor sealing of the electrical contacts. This camera is heavily used (20000+ - clicks), under a wide variety of outdoor conditions. I also find the dual function of the wheel (push in, as well as turn) to be problematic, especially when wearing gloves.
Hopefully, the LX6 will be a bit better. The Square trade warranty has turned out to be a good investment for $63 !
