I feel it works brilliantly. I never need to move both aperture and shutter at the same time, so it becomes very intuitive. One pet hate I have about the L10 is that I'm for ever bumping the rear dial as it sticks out. The single front dial with dual action is an ideal alternative. It's not easy to accidentally click the wheel.
