Had the same experience holding the Nikon re: thumb space. Thanks for pointing it out.

Thank you, guys! Your answers were really helpful!

Yesterday I went to the shop, where Canon and Nikon both were waiting to be choosen ...

I should say that shopping before New Year is a nightmare - I was standing in a line from 9:30 pm to 11:00 pm

I tried them both before buying, of course:

  • Nikon is a bit slower in zooming, menu controls, modes switching, but that is not a problem (from my point of view) - it is not that slow , as they say;

  • Nikon's picture quality is great, as well as Canon's one;

  • auto WB is different, of course, but it is a matter of taste - Nikon and Canon both were good enough.

So, finally, I got ... Canon.

The reason is - it was almost impossible for me to hold Nikon comfortable. It was very strange and I was surprised, because it is well-known that Nikon's handling is one of the best, but is is true - there was no space for my thumb

Anyway, thank you all, guys, and Happy New Year one more time!
