What are your personal pros and cons in a dslr?

I'd just like to know which are important to different people. For example my personally important pros and cons of my dslr are these ones:

Olympus E-510:


  • proper image stabilisation, amazingly effective, even for old Legacy lenses

  • live-view, with 10x live focus zoom

  • sensor dust protection

  • up to 60-second manual exposure, with sharp dark frame subtracted long exposures

  • generally good detail in resolution

  • fast operation & fast write times (with fast card)

  • ergonomically terrific!


  • less dynamic range than a few other dslr's

  • viewfinder can be dark and small when aperture is reduced

  • quite noisy from 800 ISO

Tell me yours too.
