Re: Sony ergonomics, menu system, controls and colors ...

From my own personal experience, I find it quite difficult to navigate the menu when I have to do unfamiliar things (e.g. tethered shooting, remote shooting, flash, video). But if I am just taking simple portraits, family photos, sports/action photos, I have absolutely no issues with the controls, menus or ergonomics of the camera.

If you ever mount a loxia or any other manual lens on the camera, it is an absolute joy to use. Every single control you would ever want is accessible either through a custom button, the D pad, function menu or joystick. Same again if you have a simple AF lens like a 55mm f/1.8 or 1635 f/4.

Complex scenes with multiple things to focus on? Just use the touchscreen to focus on what you want. Don't like the touchscreen, just use the joystick on the back of the camera..

In regards to colour, yes, there are differences. But those differences are not gamebreakers when considering these systems as a whole. Others disagree, and that's fine. These are all good cameras with different strengths and weaknesses.
