It's "ok" but nothing special

There are quite a few limitations (to be fair to Pentax they offer way more in their own bodies at the lower end) on these lower end Nikon's

I suppose at the blowout prices around you can overlook some of that. Shame the compatibility is so poor with Nikon (esp the in body AF motor being removed)

I agree.

I just remember paying over $1000 a few years ago for a less specified camera.

Pentax K01, Nikon D5100... its a toss up in that price range.

Of course if you have a lot of glass it would make a difference.

Nikon really blew it with the non-screw drive compatibility but most people don't buy extra lenses so it probably hasn't hurt them that much.
