John, Carmarthen

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This camera will do just about anything a serious amateur could ever want; very flexible and easy to override the auto systems for those rare occasions when one of the wide variety of auto-exposure programmes is not quite right for what you, the photographer, wants. The menu system is a dream; it is by far the most imformative that I have seen and is very easy to follow. I haven't yet done any 'scientific' testing of the lenses but, subjectively, the optics are up to Nikon's usual high standard. The camera isn't heavy - a good point - but it manages to retain a feel of solid completence; another good point.
Bad points:
Not really a 'bad' point because it is important to remember the market at which this camera is aimed but it has to be said that although most Nikkor lenses will fit the camera, not all will work will with the camera's auto-exposure system and only special lenses with the built-in motor will operate with the camera's auto-focus system. Again it's a case of the target audience but, although build quality is very good, this is not a camera that feels as though it would stand up to the punishing treatment that it might get at the hands of a busy professional.
