"Fantastic Camera -- Great for pros and beginners"5.0 starson by FrederickWHill
Pros: All of the features you want, feels very good in your hands, well made and solid
Cons: Have not found one yet
Summary: I am more than a beginner, but not close to being professional. If you cannot take good pictures with this camera, give it up. I researched and researched and looked at Canons, Olympus, and Sony. The Canon Rebel XTI was a close second, but when you hold and shoot these two cameras --- side by side, the quality and solid feel of the Nikon is obvious. It is like the difference between a chevy and a Lexus. The LCD is big and bright. If you are looking for a digital SLR, and you look at the D80, you will buy it.
