A friend of mine gave me his Nikon D80 to take few pictures the other day. Here is what I observed:
1. To change an aperture from the body I had to rotate the front wheel. On my K10D it is the rear wheel.
2. To delete a picture I had to press the "delete" button twice. On my K10D it is rather different and significantly more deliberate - you cannot delete a picture just because.
3. In review mode (yes, I chimp) rotating the rear wheel advances me to the next picture. On my K10D it will zoom in the currently shown one.
No, I am not saying that Nikon D80 has bad ergonomics or that my Pentax K10D is not good. In fact, I am passing no judgment here.
It is just that are so curiously different.
