Fuji got manual controls just right with the XT1.

Nikon messed up big time with the layout and controls of their DF - which is a shame as they could have been onto a winner if they got it right - as the sensor is a cracker.

Mostly, I agree. The drive and metering dials, however, are too easy to inadvertently switch when changing the ISO and exposure dials above them. If they could lock the bottom functions, which aren't changed as often, the experience would be nearly perfected.

The other difficulty is that every single back button has the same feel. It if very difficult to blindly tell the difference between buttons. But overall, it is a pretty easy camera to operate.
