MR shaders Vs Maya shaders

I am curious if most users are using the Mental Ray shaders (mia_materia_x) rather than the Maya shaders. What are peoples preferences and can these shaders be combined, knowing that I am going to render with MR rather than Maya_software ?

Does anyone else find the mr shaders complicated ?

if you're using mental ray, you should never use the Maya shaders, other than maybe the surface shader or use background shader.

the mr shaders are more complicated but that's because you need a certain amount of control to account for realistic effects like Fresnel IOR.
