hi all I wanted to ask opinion on a rather subjective issue, I had Nikon D700 for a long time and then sold it and bought a D750. Much about the camera is great. I find the ergonomics in relation to controls not as useful as the D700. I dont want to bore with detail(iso control among others, I know about the video button!) but is there a benefit to changing to d810 or 850 from this perspective? Grateful for any advice from those with direct experience of this. Many thanks

What specifically don’t you like? I think the D750 controls and ergonomics are pretty close to optimal. The placement of the AF-L/AE-L button for example (which I have remapped to AF-ON for bbfocus) falls right under my thumb, unlike the awkward placement on all my various Canon bodies.

So you didn’t have the D700?
