Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A feature rich camera, the onboard software is excellent, image quality is very good, overall a camera that challenges some of the more expensive models at this megapixel range.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Superb camera. Excellent feel. Great resolution. Endless possibilities and control over the image.
Bad points:
If I had to find fault it would have to be that it is heavier than other SLRs. However, one quickly becomes accustomed to the weight and build quality and weight go hand in hand anyway.
