How do you like the main command dial of the Z cameras?


Coming from Nikon DSLR's and moving to the Z system I was surprised that they changed the size and location of the main command dial on the camera.

On the current Z systems its a fairly large/thick dial that sits on the top of the camera on the right hand side. To me it seems to a bit harder to rotate it with the thumb while holding the camera to my eye. I know that this is personal preference, but that is what this post is about.

For the A9 Nikon seems to have changed the size and position of the main command dial back to the way it was with their DSLR's. It's thinner, is located inside the body near the top on the right hand side and sticks out just enough to be able to operate it.

I'm hoping that this change is something we will see in future Z camera's.

What do you think?
