Interchangeable split-prism manual focusing screen (large and bright, geared towards large aperture primes) and aperture ring on the kit lens are absolute must have features that this camera lacks and, therefore, misses the mark by a mile. Of less importance is awkward use of PASM dial instead of using A mode on shutter speed and aperture dials.
Nikon should do it right next time.
As soon as the price drop down to $200 for the body, I am buying it. Should go nicely with my 14/2.5 lens. The fact that it has a dedicated focus mode switch seals the deal for me.
Wow, I can't believe they completely f*cked up the ergonomics on this one. Idiots.
ISO flash shoe!!!!!!! YES!!!! Finally!!!!
I am so tired of using ISO shoe adapters for the past 20 years.
I have been a Minolta/SONY shooter for over 20 years. The one thing I have always hated was the flash shoe. I am so glad I don't have to use ISO shoe adapters anymore!!!
No matter what you may think of the price, this is an iconic camera.
