Chinese granite vs German steel.
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.
