What is the big deal about finally having an ISO dial on a modern camera.

It was fine on film cameras where you mainly only changed the ISO when you used a roll of film that was a different speed. Surely it is easier and quicker to assign a FN button to ISO ,no need to take your eye from the viewfinder, look down at the camera to see what you are doing, press a button, turn a dial and maybe want to do it all again for the next shot.

Is it just nostalgia or am I missing something here.

I agree, for film cameras it made sense, and I used it for exposure compensation.  Now, I mostly shoot in Manual with Auto ISO.  I did assign ISO to my Function Button but rarely use it.
