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.

Everybody doesn't photograph the same way.  I only bring my cameras VF to my eye once I'm ready to photograph.  I never change settings (except aperture) while looking through the VF.  I make those decisions beforehand.
