    Anyone had issues with the mode knob on their GF1 getting bound up and pulling the shutter lever with it? yesterday mine started jamming, if I pulled up on the knob slightly it would free up a bit and rotate ok, but if not pulled it would drag the shot number lever with it and felt like it was all locked together.

    I been using it between iA/A/M the last few days trying different exposures after looking at what the camera thinks the light and speed should be, so its been getting a workout. I am hoping it is just dust or gunk as it seems to have free'd up again this morning.

    That's not good news. :(

    My GF1 is about 2 years old and the knob is still OK. However, the camera is mostly in A mode, so the knob doesn't see much use.
