Excerpt: I bought this when my Point and Shoot gave up the ghost. It was discounted and I got it and the kit lens for a good price. Because it has a small sensor I really didn't expect much from this camera, but when I started taking pictures I was amazed at the Image Quality of the Photos, Focus is super fast and it does a really good job with Low Light situations.
Summary: An excellent lightweight, easy to carry model...with Nikon quality producing high quality images...the interchangeable lens capability makes this camera a great value for the shooter who want extra versatility...
Summary: I was researching small cameras to go on a flight/cruise. Just didn't want the bulk of my larger camera with different zoom lens on a trip with a lot of day trips in European countries. This was perfect ~ not to mention the price was a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the lowest price I could find.
Summary: Super fast shipping and great second camera to my Nikon D300. Great Everyday camera where I can't bring my D300 all the time I can bring this all the time and easy to use. Takes pictures almost as good as my D300.
