For comparison, I Also Have an E-M1 i, E-M10 i, 2x ii and iii - and these all had same feel and response between their front and rear dials (no difference felt).

However, my E-M10 Mark II has a much stiffer front dial than rear dial. The front one requires substantially more force to turn, and more of the force is wasted on friction rather than an over-centre cam action / springiness / click, so the dial feels more likely to stick between click positions.

This lends weight to Helen’s observation in another post that cameras vary on an example-by-example basis.
