    You haven't been paying attention if you think the bank of buttons to
    the left of the LCD screen are new to Nikon.

    This allegedly 'Canonesque' bank of buttons are much like the bank of
    buttons to the left of the LCD screen on my now several years old
    D300.

    Are we supposed to rely on your accurate and unbiased opinion?

    True, but the camera itself is much more angular (the D300) than the
    Canon stuff. This latest Nikon is a virtual Canon clone from a
    physical standpoint. It's like Nikon's used to be the CTS-V
    Cadillac's angularity to Canon's Japanese, rounded sameness.(as per
    cars).

    See Ken Rockwell's shots of the different cameras at the beginning of:
    http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/comparisons/2010-11-08-d7000-d300-5dmarkii-d3-iso/index.htm
    I think the reputed Canonish resemblance exists only in the eyes of
    people who don't know one camera from another anyway.
