Still, it's tough to quickly just do what you need. Other options: shift or ctrl drag for fine tuning, or just slow it down once it gets below a user set size.

1 - The only weird part about the sliders (to me) is how dragging along the upper half adjusts the value along the slider's whole range, while dragging along the bottom half adjusts relative to the current value. That definitely takes getting used to.

2 - Indeed, brush dynamics are not as easy to adjust in 2.8 as they were in 2.6 :(  You can hit the Edit button, unfortunately now that dynamics are made into their own resource type this means you can't "just" edit them any time you want, you have to Duplicate one of them before you will have a customizable dynamics matrix.  Smooth sailing once you do that, though.
