I don't own the d600, but like many, have read and seen every piece of content. I was a camera shop 'perusing' the other day and tested one out. Clearly amazing. however my first question for current owners is on its actual ergonomics.

I'm huge on tactile feedback and the principles of interaction. How has it been so far? let's try and stick to the physicality of the camera, its controls and the body.

the grip is huge. that's my opinion. but can anyone with smaller / normal sized hands describe their experience with this?

also, the multi selector is super tiny. This seemed very strange too me. it felt delicate and was is not in the same ergonomic language as the large grip (these two interaction points should reflect each other and not combat each other — from a UX perspective).

Stemming from this, I am very interested in the pro body layouts, has anyone who said to themselves "I will only get the d600 if it has a pro layout" who got the d600 anyway comment on their experience? because this is me, right now : )

Thanks, all.
