I'm a pedant/hypochondriac about dust issues, and have also taken apart my previous GR to explore this issue. In my new GR II, I have taped off both the ADJ wheel and top "up-down" dial, as well as the speaker holes. I have worked around the cancellation of these dials by the use of My Modes, and reassigning functions to the Fn1, Fn2, Effect and Flash buttons as I need.

This works for me personally. Had these dials been implemented better technologically (engineered to not allow ingress of dust), I would have been very satisfied to use them as they are, their location and functionality are great.

For me, no ADJ wheel, no GR. i cannot imagine taping it off. I think it would feel like the camera had been hamstrung..
