Hi all,

Just got a 20D in the mail yesterday! All seems fine, but just noticed the program mode dial (to select P, Auto, Manual, etc.) has a tiny bit of "play" in the wheel.

It can be turned just a hair clockwise/counterclockwise when it's dialed in on a particular setting ( auto, Program, etc.)

Can other 20D owners check this for me? Is this acceptable or should the wheel have no play in it whatsoever when on a particular setting?

Thanks in advance,

I just checked mine in all the postions and yes, a tiny bit of play but I would not consider it abnormal. As long as the wheel is locked in any particular mode it should be OK.

Now your mileage may vary as your play may be different than mine.

Mine has a little bit of play. Too much though and I'd be worried.
