Re: Ergonomics question to Canon users from a Nikon user

Personally, I consider Nikon cameras to be an ergonomic disaster. They are far to obsessed with keeping levers and buttons where they had to be in the electromechanical days, instead of making good use of the fact that pure computerized control doesn't require buttons to sit on top of their mechanical counterpart, but can be wherever they are easily accessed. Just look at the pentaprism - it was just a model away or so that Nikon finally realized that the metering switch (I think it was) didn't have to be there any longer.

And the ISO button mentioned above - sigh. The AF switch hidden down under the lens to the left side, a remnant from when the drive had to be decoupled from the camera's motor right there.
