Nikon Coolpix 5700 review

I own an slr, but I recently bought this camera for hiking. The results are stunning. Macro is especially good. Portraits at 8x zoom have nice background blur. 100% crop on images shows little more noise than slr due to the large 2/3 sensor. I hope that the pixel race ends someday so we can see a new crop of great 5MP cameras. Even with 6mp slr, lens resolution is more limiting than pixels...please stop adding pixels to small cameras! Large pixels produce better images. Noise reduction in modern cameras kills detail, so it's no match for low sensor noise.

Problems:

Indoor AF is weak.

Camera is old, so AF speed, power-up time, menu complexity, and battery life all stink.
