Re: Double wheel for aperture & exposure!

One of my big concern is how to quickly set the correct aperture and exposure compensation for each pictures.

A double wheel on the top of the camera (a la DSLR or Em-5) is for me clearly the solution that is fast and strait forward. On the other hand, I can dig in the menu if I want to change the shooting mode or the autofocus mode, this is not something you have to adapt for each picture. So for me, the top wheel in the GM1 dedicated to the AF-mode and shooting mode are not the best choice.

For me, the three most-often-used controls are ISO, aperture, and exposure compensation.  For the GM1, I assigned ISO to the top Function button. (I'm not using the touch screen Function buttons). The button/wheel arrangement for alternately controlling aperture and exposure comp. is something I first encountered in other Panasonic m4/3 cameras, and I initially had trouble getting a hang of it (changing aperture when I meant to change  exposute comp, and vice versa), but either I've gotten better at doing this or the GM1 arrangement seems to work better.
