It is awkward for my not overly large thumb to operate. In fact I'm using my thumbnail as a work around to the problem.

Personally I'm not having problems with any of your other bug bears, but as a left eye dominant I'm used to my nose and/or other bits of my face coming into contact with various bits of camera body


Isn't the point of those expensive mechanical knobs to make adjusting the most common things with them rather than going to menu. Also for more exotic settings you can customize fn buttons.

Even in xpro1 I almost never go to menu, there is nothing extraordinary there I have to fiddle with. My camera is set to my preferred settings.

In fact I have opposite problem with my xa1. Sometimes I grab it and I hear beep, beep, beep when I touched some of the buttons by accident. Trust me it is a nightmare to figure out what was changed afterwards. The best is to lock the buttons anyway.
