Excerpt: I purchased this camera as a supplemental travel camera to my D700 so I could leave its heavy lenses at home yet get outstanding results. I have a Panasonic DMC-ZS20 which I wanted to replace so I used both those cameras for comparisons. I was hoping that the Panasonic would be good enough so I could return the Nikon, but I was wrong. In almost all cases the Panasonic was the "also ran." this camera just might replace the D700, too, but not just yet.

Excerpt: Just got my hands on the new V3 after a long wait …. positives …. improvement in low light, great at iso 3200 .. I normally shoot ocean sport with a D3s & 600 f4 .. the V3 with 1 Nikkor 70-300 comes scarily close to matching that performance, pretty amazing and what a technological advancement .. the movable rear screen with touch option is sensational, with the 6.7-13 lens I don't even get sand on my knees … few issues though with the viewfinder ..

Excerpt: I'm still learning the camera and it's sweet and compact with great video features. I am howevever disappointed to find that the autofocus feature of the camera will non AS Nikkor lenses using the FT1!lens adaptor. This is a bit irritating as I sought the camera speciphically because I could use my existing Nikkor lenses for wildlife and sports photography.

Excerpt: Pay attention to your composition so you don't have to crop drastically and 13x19 prints are no problem. Love the 20 frames a second with continuous focusing and the small size of the camera. Take it anywhere. Focusing is spot on. What if you had a full size sensor? If you are a pixel peeper get a D800.

Excerpt: I bought this camera as a carry around because of the size. I have been using it for about three weeks now and find it to be much more than a point and shoot on steroids. The photo quality is amazing. I shot some waterfront photos that just POP, even in an 11x17 print. the real surprise was the video. I do youth sports videos and have gone the gamut from video camcorders to DSLRs. The HD video is right in the ball park with my D800.
