Control: GF2 vs NEX

It's odd that the NEX was heavily critisized when it came out for not being user friendly - it's the only camera that I've ever owned that I can control completely one-handedly, I can control every single feature on the camera(including power on\off with just my thumb .

After V3 firmware, I've got instant access to ISO (lower button), Aperture (control wheel), focus area(center button), Exposure compensation (joystick down). This is in aperture priority mode with custom functions assigned to the buttons according to my preferences.

With a touchscreen, of course, one handed use becomes impossible.

Another upside of only using your right hand for camera control, means that your left hand can be dedicated to lens control (when using MF lenses).
