Camaros difficult to shift, comparatively?

My 13 SS LS3 was my first manual to ever drive, other than a Jeep Wrangler, which I would just drive occasionally. So without much to compare to, I have heard that our cars are touchy clutchy, even for experience gear rowers. Obviously, anything can be adapted to. But is there any truth to this notion?

You get used to it. The shifter is not loose, and the clutch is high but after a while it becomes natural.

seems pretty easy to me. my last car was a Nissan 370z and it was harder to drive that car smoothly than the Camaro.

I test drove a 2011 SS w\ a stick while I was renting a 2011 1LT and it was horrible to said the least. Even the salesperson tried shifting it & stalled the car in the middle of an intersection, not my ideal of fun & another reason I went w\ a auto when I purchased my 2013 2LT/RS.
