I have the Fujifilm X-T2, X-E1, and X100T. All have external, dedicated shutter, aperture (on the lens), and exposure compensation dials. The X-T2 also has a dedicated ISO dial. In addition, the X-T2 has a drive and a metering dial below the ISO and shutter dials. I've gotten used to glancing at the dials even before turning the camera on. I also do a rough setting for all these features before turning it on. This saves me a lot of time once I look into the viewfinder. I don't notice the convenience until I switch to my Nikon D5500, which doesn't have any of these external dials. Everything has to be adjusted electronically. Is one system better than the other? For me, yes. I can't imagine shooting without at least a shutter and aperture dial. I can program other buttons for manual control over ISO.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Do you prefer Fuji over Nikon?
