That camera is awesome. I mean it's simply breathtaking. I can see what all the Canon 5D users are bragging about with Full Frame. Beyond the body sounding like and feeling like an amazing camera, the images it produces are just crisp, and I mean crisp. Shooting the thing in the DX mode isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Having a 5 MP image is still an upgrade from our 4.1 MP images that the D2hs takes, and being able to bump the res up to the full 12 MP is a really big plus. Live View isn't as usefull as I would have liked it to be. You have to engage the dial then press the shutter to activate it (to raise the mirror), when you want to take a photo you have to press the shutter again to close the mirror and the camer will autofocus, then you have to press the button once again to take the photo. If that wasn't enough, you have to press the shutter again to engage the mirror and start the cycle over again. Practical for those using the camera in a studio setting, but other than that it's just nice to have. The 3" LCD is amazing and sharp, and i know that I won't be able to stomach my D200 or D2hs LCD screen for too long. The "info" button that allows you to view your shooting data is nice and an added benefit for people that use tripods often, i may use it here and there myself. The AF points are crazy confusing. I didn't get to mess with them as much as I would have liked (Nikon didn't send instructions). I would have set them to Group Dynamic (if they still call it that) and gotten rid of all of those points. AF is the fastest I have seen, faster than the D2hs/x/D200, and any other camera that I have used. Pointing the sensor at a low contrast area doesn't even slow the thing down. I tried my best to rack focus and I got nothing but sharp, crisp focus. Image quality is just amazing at high ISOs. I shot at 6400 in the lowest light I could find and there was absolutely NO noise whatsoever there was however some loss of shadow detail in low light.... yes I'd give that up to shoot at ISO 12,800. Now... I have to convince the guys with the deep pockets to order about 20 of these and a spare for myself.
