I work contract, so I have worked with a bunch of different source control systems. By far the easiest has been TFS, and it has gotten better with the years.
Issues I have found with other systems:

1) Shelf Set does not exist, and this is so easy to fix bugs in your system, so partial check-ins, etc
2) It seems impossible to have two versions on your system at one time, so cannot easily work on two features at once, and cannot get somebody else's version and do whatever you need with it.
3) The only way to get (git) you code updated when somebody else has posted changes is to commit your changes.

I have not yet found a product that works better with Visual Studio than TFS, and find it amazing that all these companies continue to use crappy source control which they even pay for, which significantly impact developer productivity...typical penny wise pound foolish or maybe just plain foolish.
