If you have your own tanks, DIN would be a better choice..

But for most divers who rent their tanks or use the boats, Yoke would be the standard connection..

I prefer DIN as it's not as "long" as the yoke. Plus, I think/feel it's a strong "seal" than what a yoke seal has.

I just started using DIN two weeks ago. It's easier for me to add/remove my first stage since I only have one-arm.

I went with DIN because I started using high pressure cylinders more than anything else, and this year I purchased my own and went totally DIN!

(although I need an adaptor for my upcoming trip)

Although my first stage came "ambidextrous" I've only used Yoke - since I rent my tanks and they appear to be more popular here.

I went through class with a yoke and thought the DIN was just european. Little did I know. No that I am more advanced I wish I had a DIN because they can use an adapter to change to yoke but yoke to DIN requires taking apart the regulator.

DIN..... you can still use yoke valves as said with the adapter.

DIN is stronger
DIN gives you a little more clearance on banging on your head.
DIN is lower profile to not hit something (wrecK) or get snagged on a fishing line off a wreck.

Rental tanks here are Yoke...and so are most of the tanks at the dive locations in warmer waters. My reg is Yoke so I can take it anywhere and get a tank.

Yoke, for commonality. I use it on my own tanks and whenever I travel I am good to go. No worrying about adapters.

din - more universal and stronger. Also, less chance that o-ring will rupture in din tank.
