What's funny is that people generally wish for a pro body but they fail to realize that pro bodies REQUIRE very good ergonomics. Pro shooters use their cameras a lot, and ergonomics are a prime consideration. No one wants to be fumbling with the controls while shooting under stressful conditions. And good ergonomics with generous controls typically require a large body.

I am all for manual controls, but only a professional piano player will be able to
manage five function buttons, three controll wheels, upteenth
dedicated buttons and the focal lens ring on the lens simultanously
while concentrating on the subject and composing the picture.

Ergonomics is not about the number of controls.
