Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"There is nothing more frustrating than slow processing of your images, or full hard drives, which prevent you from making frequent backups, etc...."
_
"- RAW images often do not look as good as the JPEGs that come from the camera, until after spending a while editing."
_
"Images from it are great."
_
"The range of options of the menu system can be boggling, although right out of the box, you will shoot amazing images, particularly in the P (program) mode."
_
"Finally, the image quality is excellent."
_
"I currently use an intel-based iMac that works well with my image processing."
_
"In general, this camera does everything the big-buck cameras do, uses the DX format lenses that are far less expensive than the full frame FX ones, and has wonderful image quality and reliability as well as ease-of-use out of the box."

Lens

Lens:
"The lens broke and cannot be repaired."
_
"The seller, along with Amazon, had to be contacted and encouraged to send the missing parts, a lens and a body cap."
_
"US serial numbers so I was able to register my camera and accompanying 18-200 lens through Nikon USA for those of you worried about gray market gear."
_
"Beware that telephoto lenses to get as far as, or further than a compact super-zoom are extremely expensive, big, and heavy."
_
"The only complaints, which are minor, are that the switch at the base of the camera's lens mount that controls the focus type (manual, single, continuous) is exposed and easy to inadvertantly change."
_
"The camera with the 18-200mm ED-IF AF-S VR DX lens makes for a real good match."
_
"If you have good technique, you can easily hand-hold this lens at 1 8th of a second over most of its range, and I've shot lower with careful bracing."
_
"The 18-200mm zoom will make a good all-purpose TRAVEL lens and I expect to be purchasing additional lens (not necessarily for travel) in the future."
_
"About the 18-200 mm VR lens: In my opinion, this is the best kit lens out there."

Quality

Quality:
"If other people write about this issue I can guess this is not a rare case of technical failure, but rather a sign of insufficient manufacturing and quality level -and this should not happen with a camera of this class."
_
"Infant mortality is indicative of manufacturing problems and poor quality control."
_
"I have had this camera for a while and have take many many pictures, excellent picture quality and very durable!"
_
"Finally, the image quality is excellent."
_
"The quality it delivers is exceptional for a super-zoom and also for a kit lens."
_
"Wow I really cant believe its my first camera...and its of course in good quality and since I just start learning about photographing...its somehow really frustrating that I have to adjust all the stuff several times before I can get the effect I want...if you are beginner and want to go further without spending another couple thousand bucks to change your camera its a pretty good choice...but if you just want to know how SLR works or whatever its obviously not proper unless youre very rich...and the lens is wonderful...Hmm its your choice anyway I just wanna say its great..."
_
"In general, this camera does everything the big-buck cameras do, uses the DX format lenses that are far less expensive than the full frame FX ones, and has wonderful image quality and reliability as well as ease-of-use out of the box."
