You need some time to understand any complex menus

Step 1 is hiring an UI-Expert to help organize the menus.

My guess is that the philosophy is that the menus are meant for setting up the camera properly, not for daily use. With My menu there is a shortcut for items you use often, and that can not pe placed elsewhere, like the Format command.

When looking at the "old" menu structure, the items are collected in groups, making orientation pretty good. Of cause, a more visual approach would have make orientation easier, but how often do users need to access the menu items?

When I am looking at, say Nikon menus, they seems like a mess until I have spent some time to be familiar with the terms and placement of the items. Better? Worse? I don't know. But you need to spend some time to be familiar with any complex menu system.
