Your reference to the ergonomics of the Omni VII front panel - what is your concern?  Just a curiosity question on my part.

It did take me a few hours to get use to it, but I see where even on the new and highly touted TS-590 you do some serious button pushing too.

The single tree menu in the Omni VII software is sweet.... you're not trying to go thru layers of menu settings.  

When it comes to layers, I always think of my TS-706MKiiG in how I can never quite remember which menu layer a feature is in while mobile.  I have to pull over to figure things out. :-( I'm not saying it deserves comparison to the Omni VII, but all of these radios now-a-days have menus and "push and hold button x while you press soft key y" so it just comes down to getting use to the radio.

Just my observation of the Omni VII.
