What is the big deal about finally having an ISO dial on a modern camera.

It was fine on film cameras where you mainly only changed the ISO when you used a roll of film that was a different speed. Surely it is easier and quicker to assign a FN button to ISO ,no need to take your eye from the viewfinder, look down at the camera to see what you are doing, press a button, turn a dial and maybe want to do it all again for the next shot.

Is it just nostalgia or am I missing something here.

If Fujifilm made it so that it only locked in the A position then it would be good. As it is, no.

but those knobs will turn by themselves if no lock, no matter how stiff they are. In that case it would be worse than ISO in menu that usually doesn't change by itself. How many times I was shooting 1/4000 or with bogus ev on x100 !

I personally don't have any issues with dials that don't lock.

And I don't think locking dials are any harder to use than unlocked dials.
