    is it only me that finds this annoyingly placed? I do notice they've shifted it to the top deck on the GH-2

    to GH2 owners, How are people finding the relocation of the dial to the thumb from the location in the G1 / GH1

    I have disconnected mine on my GH1 (done in the menu). I agree it is annoying.

    VERY annoying! I disabled it too. Now if I could just remap the red button to turn on the focus assist.

    I kinda like it. The E-PL2 has the button in the same place, but is a lot easier to activate. On my GH1, the button is a bit stiffer making it harder to activate by accident. I've only had the camera for a day, and I really like it and am going to enjoy learning to use it. :thumbup:

    I absolutely love it. You can start recording video with your trigger finger without taking your eye away from the EVF, then move your finger to the shutter and take full-resolution still frames while video is rolling. Did I mention that I love it? :smile:
