Looking at the pictures in reviews, it seemed like it would have 'one finger' less room on the grip, which I would have thought to be a deal-breaker with my long hands. When I had a chance to pick it up, I was surprised how secure it felt, with all fingers doing their job. Kind of magic.

The D7000 felt odd to me, it did not feel immediately comfortable. It had a hard place at the bottom that dug into my hand. Interesting how very subjective all these things are.
