Quote:That is the most silly post of you in a while. With either silly or bullcrap points. Don't do that. :blink:
Not walking into the trap of going point by point, or making a real list of ergonomics issues of whatever mirrorless thing, as by now I know your style. But again, just don't do that...
I disagree on "silly post" although I could bring in some samples were Nikon is worse or slightly better or Fuji is not helping much, although being mirrorless.
Nikon changing AF mode? Left finger, right hand both wheel fingers. Good luck with gloves.
Touchscreen on Fuji? Good luck with finding, even better luck with sensible menus on it - touchscreen per se can be "just another handicap" or also "great help".
X-T2 has a tiltable screen, but less useful than the old Nikon D5100 or G11 from Canon.
AF-mode change on Fuji: One of those wheels which are either too difficult or too easy to move. Except the top wheels. But the AF-selsctor is neither hard enough to move no defined in place. And then the lenses, some with clutch, some without, some focus by wire with no acceleration sensor and slow - which is a pain when using a 100-400.
But I'm sure, everybody's "must have ergononomics" list would have different topics. I don't want to be the designer to make a camera out of our lists. But I think, all manufacturers have different model series and should be more clear in the differences. It's not easy to get dedicated feature listings - I understand it would be very long lists, but I don't understand why we users need to do all the work. The feature list of my Yashica FX3 would be 10 rows or so, but I don't feel I'd need longer to get a picture with it than with a DSLR including all those settings.
As for the matte screen in discussion before: In theory BC would be right. If the flange distance from mount to sensor and to screen would be exactly the same - ON ANY given spot of screen and sensor - the screen could even compensate back or frontfocus. That's theory, in reality only LiveView on sensor level rules, indirect focussing methods remain second best.
There are far more variables in this equation, we should be much happier and grateful if the AF module sometimes hits bullseye.
