Being fed up with its bulk , about 6 months ago I switched from  a Canon 5d mki to fuji xt1. Generally I'm happy, I have a converter so  I can use my old lenses and the fuji, 18 & 27mm. No complaints at all with those. However, I'm getting frustrated with how bloody anoying and fiddly the camera is to use. I keep knocking the drive ,metering ,shutter and the exp comp dials when ever I pick it up and I can't use the rear dial without a thumb In my eye. I'm really happy with how much size and weight I've saved, but its starting to become a chore to use.  Is this a shared observation of fuji or is it just me and fat fingers. Is there an alternate to the xt1 that is easier to use or should I just carry on and hope to get used to it

I own the X-T1, which I now use as my fake XPro2 or 3 with the 27mm 2.8 lens.  I love that camera.  However, it is rather tiny compared to the X-H1 and even the X-T2.  Have you tried those?  In additions I ALWAYS had an issue with the X-T1 and the almost recessed buttons on the back. I even tried Sugaru to raise them which worked for a while, but it does come off. 

You may want to consider another camera body and use the X-T1, like a compact - which is what I do now.  I keep it in my bag and pull it out whenever the opportunity arises during my commute.
