Re: A quick day out with the Olympus E-M1 and the SONY a7

The E-M1 dials sometimes feel a little unresponsive. One click of the dial does not result in a value change. Sometimes I need to use two clicks to get the aperture, for instance, to change. Rolling the dial vigorously seems to help a bit (maybe cleaning the contacts) but would also wear things out more quickly. They feel great - just that they're sometimes not responsive enough.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you may have a defective EM1. Seems some have a problem with the rear wheel skipping. Its probably minor but still a pain in the A--. It starts skipping occasionally then gets worse, Mine went back for service.
