It should say "we have no banding". ;)

LOL...

On ergonomics, they both have their ups and downs.

Pluses, on the D800, in my opinion, over Canon:
1. Deleting images
2. Main and secondary dial position is easier for me to hit than Canon ones for some reason.
3. Ease of access of DOF preview and Fn buttons, super easy for me to hit them for some reason.
4. Format
5. Some other random crap

Minuses:
1. ISO button if you are using a longer lens (though I usually use AV and have the rear dial control ISO).
2. My opinion: AF switch button+dial to change from AF-S to AF-C can be hard to hit compared with Canon method.
3. I don't like the D800's pad as well as the Canon 7d or 5d3 or w/e Joystick
4. Menus. The Canon UI makes way more sense, in my opinion!

I haven't found any negative on the D800 to be honest. I just use the camera and shoot it. ;) I'm a shooter that can adapt to any camera. The most challenging body I've ever used was trying to get used to MF with the M9. :lol:

You forgot the built in digital level! Talk about handy. Plus built the grid screen you can just turn on.

I don't have any issues with the minuses you mentioned. The AF-S/AF-C bugged me a little at first, but I got used to it pretty quickly.

The level is pretty handy but, I rarely use it. I definitely like the built in grid screen though.

I use the grid screen far more than I do the level. It's just one of those things that's nice to have if you need/want to use it.

I've been using a Canon for a couple of years and I'll probably change to the Nikon D600. Of all cameras currently available it is the closest to exactly what I want in a camera.

Sure, though it will probably take a few months. I'm going to wait for better ISO comparisons, especially with D700, and I will want to actually try it in a local store before I decide. Samples so far seem very good, but I will compare it side by side with my current camera and the D700 before I decide.
