Nikon Coolpix P5000 review

It's easy to carry. It is easy to use w/ its many buttons and dials. It has A, S, and M mode. It seems to work welll with my old stock wide and tele conversion lenses, WC-E63, E68, E24, TC-E2, TC-E3, and FC-E8. Some of the photos I took look excellent! VR works well.All over it's a very good camera.

Problems:

no AE-L!
ocational focusing difficulty. If the focusing is better and w/AE-L, I may give 5 starts for image quality . --but probably better than many of P&S cameras.
I bought SB-400 for my option lenses, but it doesn't always work well.
