My problem is: If you use these lenses, why use a Canon camera body? Well, yes, rt flashes and Magic Lantern, but beyond that?Ergonomics.
I agree, but then again I've never shot with a Nikon for a longer time and I'm inclined to believe millions of people *are* able to adjust to them :-> ... and the difference between a right-hand 60d/6d design vs. a "pro" dual-hand joystick 5d3/1dx is probably as large as towards another brand.
Still, there was something 'natural' about the Canon bodies when I was looking for a DSLR. Nikon somehow always confuses me. That said, Sony isn't all that great either. I wish my NEX-6 had a better menu structure, and an easier way to do exposure compensation. The A7(r) looks like it is massively better. However I'm not ready for a full-frame mirrorless... Yet.
OTOH, on that NEX, I'm using (old) Canon lenses on a third party body. How's that?
