when i had my film eos as a newbie, I found it "intuitive" for me.Originally Posted by Tetrode
But I guess all SLR/DLSR whether nikon or canon, need some finding out if the user is new to it. I look at the nikon operations & control, the AF selector has no markings or indication, so had to findout too, maybe it is just more convenient in operation for some. So wouldn't really call it intuitive.
That's why some swear by their Nikon, some swear by their Canon, some switch from Nikon to Canon, & vice versa.
For people wo used SLR/DLSR, if switch brands, their will "intuitively" seek to select AF point, by intuitive trail & error or simply ask or read the manual. (doesn't take much time or effort to findout, unless the manual is not user-friendly)
Anyway, AF point selection is just one aspect of so many controls, which may be more important to some & less to others (pros & cons, how the user makes the best use of it). I started with Canon, but when I see the control operations of Nikon (even other brands), I just thought it is basically the same in the end.
So....Nikon or canon, is just a "one man's meat is another's poison". Ultimately it is the photographer's interest, skills & talents that really makes a difference.
have a nice weekend & shooting.
