I'd say not terribly, no. I read the entire instruction book before I got mine (upgraded from a 300D to a 1DmkII, and it wasn't long before I figured out all the options I want to use...or at least know where approximately in the instruction book to find them.

My 2 cents: I like the 1 series menu and UI better then that on the 10D (20D). I was used to the 1n, so that probabely helps ;)
The one thing that *did* take time to get used to, was the different cropfactor of the 1D2 (I use primes exclusively, so my 'lens grabbing reflexes' had to readjust) and the fact that the light meter on the 1D2 reacts slightly different to some situations (extreme backlit situations) compared to the 10D.
Also the 8fps took some time to get used to :lol:

as a recent 20D -> 1D switcher, I'll admit it took me a couple of days to stop mentally projecting 20D controls onto my mental image of the 1D. I'm used to the 1D now. But..... two observations. First, I wouldn't want to have both, as it would not allow being really smooth with either, and second, the 20D is faster to use while shooting. But it's no big deal.

I definitely prefer the categorized menu system of the 1D. better organized

I used my 1D in anger for the first time today, and to my amazingment I found the controls logical and easy to use. It was going back to my 20D (which I was using as well) that I found problems remembering the controls.

As with anything in life. Practice makes perfect. It is what you are used to. For having a EOS 3 in the mids of 90s, than changing to a 7e (for a dslr). That was difficult. The buttons were not in the usual place. when I finally got used to the 7e controls, going back to 1vhs again became cumbersum. However since the 1v and 3 series is similar it took MUCH less time to remember the control.

So came my 20D. Again, 1-Series control was completely different. However after 2 months are trying to remember the settings and such, I gave up and got a 1dmk2. All the external control were the same, so it was great.

The point is, its what you are most comfortable with and how much time you have spend learning it. If anyone here were to change over to Nikon, it would probably take time for them to get iniative with the controls. Nothing is HARD to learn, it how much mechanical skill you put in to it.

The only great feature the 1-series has are the Personal Settings. Each of the CFn functions can be further modify. Not many people uses it, but once you learn how you can tailor the camera to your shooting style/situation, its a great tool.

I learned to use it on my 1vHS (requires the software and link cable), and I have both my MK2 setup the ways I shoot.

i think the menu system of the 1d is similar to the 350d...much better than the 20d. as for the button pushings two at a time I;m used to this with the 1N so the 20D to me when I used it was a bit odd. just didn't like it, I still prefereed the handling of the 1N...and the 20D didn't focus right but thats another point entirely.
I saw on dpreview the CFn lay out, i think the way it has a little blurb for each one very good, i didn't know they were extended to another level as you put it. i'd be interested if you could elaborate a little further on that...

Not the only great thing...
Also, it can be very confusing when you use someone elses 1D. The control can be *very* different ;)

Still, reviving this thread from the dead was not so bad as I got to see Pekka's hilarious 1D again! Made me laugh out loud again. :lol:

I'm too late, you've already deleted it. It was interesting, and your post made me take a look at this thread. Pekka's camera (and your post) brought a smile to my face before I finished my morning (11:00 AM) coffee. That is quite an accomplishment!
