Mark, Great Eccleston

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's a Nikon and consequently looks great. Ergonomically designed. Colour rendition is absolutely superb which is one of the main reasons I chose this camera (great white balance too). Excellent selection of lenses with more becoming available by the month (best macros and wide angles in my opinion). Good battery life. Excellent Nikon website - for support etc. Responsive and good for many types of image making; landscape, architecture, portrait and close-up macro nature.
Bad points:
Weight. Lens build not as good as the body.
