What are your personal pros and cons in a dslr?

Here's mine - E3:


Lens line (intermediate and high grade) that is very consistent, and very sharp
Color rendition
Weather sealing, body and lenses
Generally excellent build quality
Live view 10x for macro focusing
Longer reach of telephoto
One of the finest UWA lenses ever made, 7-14
Can attach most film lenses with an adapter


Weak high ISO
Shallow DOF harder (but not impossible) to get
Lower overall MP

For what I like to do, the pro's outweigh the cons, by a wide margin. But, that's just me. I tramp around the woods and wade through streams, so weathersealing is high on the list. I don't tend to shoot in situations that demand very high ISO, nor do I print so large that 10mp poses a restriction. If I did, I'd probably go Nikon instead.
