<p>It looks like Canon and Leica have seen the least amount of change in ergonomics when compared to everyone else, which has probably been a blessing for the two companies.</p>
<p>You can see all the animations below in the gallery.</p>

+1
And Olympus P&S were merged together with the OM(D).

But cool animations ;)

Right, it you put there a Nikon F camera you can't skip the Canon F-1, or the FTb/AE-1/A-1 ones, or even the T line before the T-90 - which is the model that introduced the actual DSLR design.
