a99 control wheels/dials issue....
1

Hi all,

Ive been a 4/3 then m4/3 users for about 15 years...Ive just bought and returned a used a99 with a supposed low shutter count and in excellent condition.

The reason I returned it is the rear control dial. Its functional, however is barely usable...its 'sticky' and very hard to turn...Ive since read this is a reasonably common issue with this camera.

Its made me rather reluctant to buy another, even though this is the camera I really want, as it is quite unique. Im planning to convert some zf Milvus lenses to A mount and the complimentary body size, large grip, EVF and FF sensor cant really been found elsewhere (this side of $3000 [a99ii])

Anyways, if a99 users/owners wouldnt mind chiming in regarding weather or not theyve experienced this issue id appreciate it.

Cheers all

Sony Alpha a99
