    I've been searching the manual with no luck, is it possible to customise the rear dial, specifically what happens when you click it? I keep accidentally switching to Exposure Compensation by pressing too hard when I'm just trying to scroll through Shutter Speed or Aperture.

    It doesn't appear to take much effort to accidentally click it, it's even more frustrating because Exposure Compensation can rather excellently be allocated to the Lever, so there is no need for me to have it available on the Rear Dial anyway. I often very quickly need to change shutter speed shooting motorsport, so the risk of entering a different mode alltogether is something that could cause me significant issues.

    It's typical, but the G5 is staggeringly customisable, but the first thing I decide I would like to change after a few days of shooting doesn't appear to be possible!

    Nope. Can't change it. I agree, far too easy to press.... I'd like to be able to disable it too.
