R7 button/Control dial layout change…why?
5

I don’t presume to know the reasons on button layout and design of the camera companies….

But, it FLOORS ME why Canon changed the button and control dial layout on the R7. I’m sure it will work fine…but for those of us that were looking at the R7 as a complimentary crop sensor body to the R6 or R5, the different button layouts seems off-putting.

Why is Canon changing their button/control layouts so often on their mirrorless cameras? (e.g. R has different layout than the RP as well)

The R6 and R5 did very well…why not just stay with what works, until you have evidence stating it doesn’t?
