Image:
"I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a camera which not only has good image quality, but can also focus quickly and take a photo quickly."
_
"Very nice camera, simple to use, great pics"
_
"I am very happy with the portability coupled with the image quality."
_
"It's obvious Nikon was aiming for casual and amateur photographers, and providing them an effective photography tool without forcing them into a physically large and more expensive DSLR (DX or FX).Pros:-------- Shockingly fast focusing in good light (on part with the Olympus OM-D E-M1)- Electronic shutter only (turn off the sounds, and you have completely quiet shooting)- Body and lens are significantly smaller than even the micro 4 3 system (2.7x crop factor instead of 2x)- Camera powers up when lens is unlocked and twisted- Unobtrusive for it's capabilities (not too big, looks like a point and shoot)- It comes in some funky colors (I dig the khaki, which is a dark green)- Flash mechanism allows you to bounce (not too powerful of a flash, but the photos look much nicer when the flash is bounced)- Decent lens selection (comes with the 11-27.5mm, which is a nice pancake zoom, just ordered a 30-110mm for telephoto)- FT-1 adapter can be used to use AF-S lenses (although it might not be as discrete anymore)- Crazy continuous capture (15 fps with AF, up to 60 fps without)- Interesting shooting modes (some folks calls them gimmicky, but hey, they might serve a purpose to some others)- Useful clicky wheel on the rear- Multiple auto-ISO ranges (up to 800, 3200, 6400)- Image quality is *almost* as good as micro 4 3, only pixel peeping will reveal the differences- Dedicated video recording button- Tiny rubber thumb grip is *very* useful in keeping the camera stable in hand- Miniscule shutter lag (important for those looking to move up from a point and shoot)- Due to the lack of popularity of the system, accessories can be purchased fairly cheap (cases, underwater kits, etc."

"):>> The kit lens is not so great for close-up macro shots; you have to back off the subject to get proper focus."
_
"Our only problems have been with the lens opening unexpectedly and battery life."
_
"But the cheapo lens that comes with this package is not good."

"Will probably show scratches easily)- Very few third party lenses (indicative of the low adoption rate of the system)- When using playback mode with full details, there is no indicator as to when the click wheel is in zoom mode versus navigation mode (pretty minor issue, you get used to it)- No mode physical mode dial (there is a virtual mode dial available with just a single button push, and I usually just set up the camera and leave it in P, so not a huge impact for me)- AF illuminator is an obnoxious bright green LED (hey, at least it has one!"
_
"The grip on the kit lens is very nice and i like it."
_
"An excellent lightweight, easy to carry model...with Nikon quality producing high quality images...the interchangeable lens capability makes this camera a great value for the shooter who want extra versatility..."
_
"This is a great in between with swappable lenses, compact (compared to DSLR) and takes great pictures."
