Ergonomics can be overcome. If someone wants creative control over DOF it requires a combination that includes a sensor large enough for the job. As for price that is purely personal. A pro understands that they might have to pay more for the right tool.

My only issue is that I've typically found the combination of the notion that "ergonomics can be overcome" along with a fixation on DOF is much more typical of inexperienced newcomers than actual professionals. It's like hearing "I want a camera that makes sharp photos" from a pro, it's weirdly disorienting.

The OP has determined his preference. Why question it? If you don't understand it, then why comment at all unless you are being open minded and willing to consider the answer?

I did, hence my suggestion.
