Is anyone else with a 6D having issue bumping their settings constantly while shooting?

i seem to bump my shutter speed an awful lot. so much im thinking of going to the 5d3 because of it. seems I drag my finger over the wheel while going to the trigger button.

No issues here... in fact I love how smooth feel of the 6D's shutter button compared to the tight one on the 7D

I shot an event with a rented 6d last night on a black rapid type strap and found I bumped the shutter dial more often than ever before, and I bumped the live view/video mode button quite a lot.
I had my 60d on my hip in a Bgrip evo and I don't think I bumped the buttons too much if at all.

I did have the strap higher than I usually have it and more under my arm than on my hip, so I think that was the reason this time since I haven't had that issue before.

I find my right thumb hitting the AF points button but usually after the first time each session I remind myself not to do that and it's not a problem. Now if you can use this "problem" to get permission to get a 5Diii I would milk the heck out of it!

I don't have any problems accidentally hitting buttons. I do have problems finding some on the top plate because they're a little farther apart than what I'm used to.

No issues on mine as well. I've gotten used to the change from the 7D to the 6D, and loving it!

thanks for the feedback. guess i just need to change my style better. my other bodies it just stuck out higher with, and they had much stiffer wheels.

Only control quible; I have hit the control lock while it's in my bag. Take it out; and first few minutes are sometimes confusing as nothing works.
