This may slant me hard towards it.

I am outside shooting and no Internet ATM (not even at this Starbucks - my favorite non profit organization) - so can't upload anything.

I have to say that Best Shot Mode, while I initially saw it as just a gimmick on my V1, really is neat. For people, dogs, moving insects in macro mode - a whole range of things - it works well. If you have the flash on (I have the SB-N5, don't know about others), it uses the led light during the period you are buffering the shot, which can be useful for something like macros.

I thought it could be a gimmick but I like the active mode where you select which shots to save. Not sure if the V1 had that.
