5 out of 5 eggsBuy this camera if you can.

Pros: Brilliant camera. Resolution will no longer be an issue. Test the pixel noise at high ISO in full sunlight; there really isn't anything there to speak of. Auto focus is always better than I can do manually. Auto color balance has always been correct. Battery life has been great.

Cons: Resolution is so sharp that the apparent depth of field has shallowed so much that nearly all normal photos need to be taken at f16 or higher. It's made trash out of my D300s. Grease in shutter forced me to get a pro cleaning when I was sloppy cleaning the sensor myself. With a great lens, I have no excuses for poor photos other than myself!

Other Thoughts: Image size should not be an issue with modern memory cards and desktops.

5 out of 5 eggsFeels like a Precision Instrument vs Grown up Toy

Pros: Build Quality, Image Quality, Uncompressed HDMI-out video, dual card slots, battery life, Accurate focus tracking, wide range of customization options, no shallow DOF loss due to FX sensor.

Cons: both of the dual card slots could be SD even though CF has higher potential throughput (not many CF cards have higher throughput than SD currently and CF is alot more expensive), slower burst rate than competing models (although the product is not positioned towards sports photographers), heavy, huge images (slow to upload onto traditional HDD RAID array despite CF card having 120 MB/s read), need expensive flash memory to take full advantage of features, only one Fn button, built in flash feels a bit flimsy for a professional model.

Other Thoughts: bought this during a sale for about 2250 which was a steal for this new model (upgrade from old D200 DX model). Had some older high quality FX lenses which work great with this camera (28-70mm 2.8, 70-200mm VR, 50mm 1.4D). I would carry it wherever I go but with the 28-70mm, its weighs about 5 LBs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat camera

Pros: Excellent camera. Lots of features. This is a very nice camera for studio and architecture shots. I was really impressed with how many pictures i thought were garbage at first, but I was able to recover (shooting in raw) and actually made them look good to really good.

Cons: Heavy, loud shutter. The other down side is mostly due to high resolution; working with large raw files is rather intensive and quite noticible (iMac, Core i7/16GB).

Other Thoughts: Overall I am happy with it, this being my first full frame camera.
