"I LOVE that feature."

They're a good choice for all around work. Low light is extraordinarily good. Right now, this is the best of the breed. Love the screen. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Nikon equivalents.

Mirrorless has come into it's own. The second problem is the focusing controls. Several things keep it from getting 5 stars, however. The Nikon phase and contrast system has it beat. I love this combo and I must say I am thrilled with the Nikon .

"Worth every penny."

Since this is a new camera not all Nikon accessories will work. The camera is fast, sharp, and most important to me - light. Every movement is so smooth, the slow motion really impressive. Only gripes are slow focus and short battery life. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill.
