"Benchmark Enthusiast DSLR"5.0 starson by BAD_DOG_BAD_DOG
Pros: Fast and unobtrusive. It is fast to focus, fast to aquire, fast to make setting changes. The camera doesn't get in the way with your photography.
Cons: Really don't have any. Most others negatives seem to be from actually never using the camera, or unwillingness to learn to work with the camera.
Summary: To start with, this camera is a benchmark camera for the APS-C crowd. It has a high enough pixel count to really not want more from an APS-C sensor. Nikon has not compromised on noise performance for pixels. Aquisition of images is very fast. (The kit lens slows it down some, put on a nice lens, 70-200mm f2.8 and wow). The viewfinder shows everything you need, and the top LCD is very nice when making settings with a long lens attached. Some don't care for the ISO/WB etc., on the back, but after an hour working with the camera, my fingers were easily finding the right button. No they don't have a different feel, but neither do the keys on my piano, got those down too! Image quality per pixel is exceptional, high iso useability is exceptional. The video works well, and 1080p 24fps is perfect for the independent film makers. It is primarily a still camera, and I thank Nikon for not forgetting that! I've had mine for a month and am contiunaully surprised at just how good it really is, and how much camera I got for the money. I very much like it with the 16-85mm ED VR lens, rather than the kit lens for everyday use. Clamp a manual focus 24mm and do video with a smooth focusing Nikkor, you will love it! Try putting an FD on your 60D...
