It seems as if you are wanting to judge this camera based on its ability to shoot dark street photography, or low light photography. If so, I think you are going to be disappointed for the most part. Looking at the NikonUSA presentation / announcement of this camera, it seems like it is designed specifically for the sports enthusiast shooting in very good light.

I am judging this camera according to my needs. That does include what you said along with good ergonomics, reasonable size, etc. so it's not just that. According to Nikon's marketing this camera should do in "all light situations" due to the "new noise redux/ISO 12800 blah blah blah" marketing

I am not expecting a Fuji XT1 performance here, just good enough for what I want.

Now that they are rolling out, I would really like to see someone post some action photos taken of daytime and nighttime baseball games. It will be interesting to see how well it performs doing what it has been designed for, daytime sports, and how well it performs shooting sports under stadium lighting and in gyms.

Someone else will I guess.
