"aperture priority"

I would like to know if when shooting in aperture priority mode you cha change what settings the main command dial changes?
Is seems to change the ev setting and I tend to bump it out of the normal position.
Thanks
Brian

By default the front dial changes aperture and the rear dial changes shutter speed. In aperture priority mode the camera is in control of shutter speed so the rear dial does nothing. Similarly in shutter priority the front dial does nothing. Unless, according to some Googling, you go into the custom settings menu and turn on Easy ISO, which makes the "spare" dial change ISO. Disclaimer: I don't have my camera handy to try it. Sounds like a good feature though.

Oops! I missed your post above. Sorry for repeating your answer.

You probably have easy exposure compensation set (custom setting b3). If you do, it is easy to accidentally adjust ev by bumping the command dial. That is why I keep that feature turned off.
