"Good technical camera"4.5 starson by charmedlyfe
Pros: Excellent build quality, weathersealing, incredible high-ISO image quality, dual memory card slots, microadjust, 100% viewfinder, long battery life
Cons: Video not up to expectations, had to update firmware to correct hot pixel issue, hi2 ISO (25600) isn't really useable
Summary: I bought this beast as an upgrade from my D80. The only negative issues I've found are the mediocre video/live view performance (autofocus doesn't work very well), and the highest advertised ISO setting (25600 eq) is too noisy to use. This could be addressed by a firmware update to improve noise reduction. Performance is still visibly better than the Canon 60D (all-plastic, not sealed, still-image quality not as good). The Canon does have better video capability, but why buy a DSLR for video when better performance can be had from a (wait for it...) VIDEO CAMERA! The 18-105 is not much of a lens (DEFINITELY not pro-quality), and much better can be had for the same price. All said, I'm happy with it, and image quality is excellent. For the price, the best DSLR out there.
Thanks for your submission!
