A6500: Gloves & Control wheel don't go well together

In general, I love my 6500.

But, when its cold in the early mornings - like it is from mid-October to sometimes well into April here in Colorado, the usability of the Control Wheel is dismal while wearing gloves. My hands get cold, so going without gloves isn't a comfortable option.

I try to do exposure compensation & end up changing the iso or the drive mode. It happens so often that it is frustrates me especially when I fail to notice the change right away.

My gloves are thin enough that I don't have any issues with the C1, C2 buttons or the AF/MF button or lever.

If the next model gets rid of the control wheel - that may be enough for me to get it. (Probably not, but the way I feel right now...)
