Hold button + spin dial sucks. And it was hard to transition from the D700 to the D3 since instead of ISO and quality being on top, its at the bottom.

that sounds like it would hurt.

The pain would be more bearable than having to fumble with a button-loaded, scooped-grip Nikon body all day. I want to love Nikons.... they just don't fit my hands well.

vs.



Obviously, impossible to tell without holding them both -- many people love Nikon's ergonomics, but I am not one of them.

When you have the camera up to your eye, Nikon wins so hard. In the menus, Canon is a slightly bit better, easier to sort through, which is also a drawback since you have to remember where a certain custom setting is. The FEL button is both useless and in the worst place imaginable. The on switch on Canons is pure crap. And I think on the 1D series its hold and turn dial too, so thats a tie.
post #13277 of 29551
be aware that the 1-series bodies require you to push two-three buttons all at once to change a setting.

after using a 1ds mk2 for years then using a d700 (back to single buttons) it was quite refreshing.

Not all settings require a combo press, but even the ones that do aren't bothersome (to me). The problem is that both systems appeal to people for different reasons, and a lot if it comes down to how one's brain works. In actuality, Nikon's layout choices make more sense, and should be faster in use. However, I have a hard time with the funny location of said buttons and switches, and find myself constantly fumbling to change settings while using Nikon bodies. By contrast, I can pick up any Canon from the XT to the 1DsIII and get to work immediately with very little learning curve. Button locations that change are labeled very clearly and less abbreviated than Nikon's.

It is what it is, and you can't have it all with either variant -- there are some things each mfr does a little bit better, just comes down to the individual to decide which of those things are more comfortably sacrificed.

If you shoot Nikon, its pretty much the same. It takes me about a week to switch from the replay button on the 5DII to Nikon's (which is up top).
post #13280 of 29551
you can't expect to switch brands and get used to it right away. for instance, when borrowing a friend's camera or playing with it at the store.

i came from using an XTi/1ds2 almost everyday to renting a d700 (also rented the 5dm2 a week before). at first i hated it and it took me about 2 weeks to get the d700 dialed in to my settings. now everything is muscle reflex.

do i like the d700 better than canon's ergonomics? yeah. is it going to make a difference? probably not. if i only had say, a 5d2 i can probably work with it as fast as i can work my d700 given enough time. i just can't live without those wonderful middle/pinky custom func buttons though.
