    Received my X-T2 a couple days ago, and found that the ISO and SS dial wiggle a small amount if force is applied to them, is that normal, or should I be worried that they will pop off one day?

    I recorded a video of what I'm experiencing:


    I also own a Nikon D3, and might be colored due to it being built like a tank, but seeing the X-T2 build quality being praised everywhere I had hoped for better.

    Normal for all of the fuji bodies I have owned. Never gets looser from what I have experienced.
    The knobs are still weather sealed under the knobs.
    I normally don't have to apply much force to change ISO or shutter speed! ;)

    Good to hear! I was worried that I had a bad model. Anyway, how does the weather-sealing hold up? It looks like they use some kind of foam instead of rubber to seal the flaps, I could be worried that the foam will dissolve over time.

    No idea on that one... I have had my in the rain a few times since I got the camera. Got it when it first came out. No problems so far.
    There are a few outdoor photographers in the forum that can speak to that much better than I can.
