Great camera to use! Especially with Nikon 18-200mm lens!
1

For a while, I have been looking for a lightweight camera good for video. This fits the bill. I stuck on an 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II ($200) lens, and I am good to go. On the photo side, it takes bright, colorful images. The screen is great, being a flippy screen.

Pros:

Lightweight

Affordable

Flippy screen

1080HD video

Cons:

Not good if you need to change settings rapidly.

Using live view slows down focus speed.

Can't use the newest of AF-P lenses, but I don't care!

Overall, given the $95 price I paid for this body, this gets a solid 4.5/5 stars.
