I'm trying this again in a couple of weeks when this same friend is stopping over in Hawaii with her new D800. Last time with her D3s it was freezing outside (we were outside) and trying to figure that D3s out at 15 degrees with gloves on was a real PIA. I'm hoping Hawaii weather will be more cooperative, and while I wasn't really interested in buying a D3s I am very interested in the D800. I get a couple of days with it before she flies off to southeast Asia on an assignment.

Ergonomics was one of the reasons I switched to the 7d that and the simplicity of the controls. Love my 7d !!!

I hate the operation of Nikons. As well as how they feel on the hand. One of the big reasons I went to Canon in first place.

7D is probably the best DSLR out there in terms of ergonomics. Even better than his big brothers. It just fits your hand perfectly. I wish the 5D3 had inherited 7D's ergonomics.

The 5D3 is superior to the 7D ^

They are actually very, very similar. The 5D3 adds even more "grip" on the battery door and the shape falls into the hand even better. Have you used a 5D3 to compare them? I have yet to hear somebody think the 7D is superior ergonomically to it.
