Pros: I really like all the features and when the camera works it is great.
Cons: The first camera I purchased did not work at all. It was returned. The second one worked great for about a year and then the telephoto lens began to malfunction making it either very difficult or impossible to zoom and focus.

Pros: When you can focus great color and sharp pictures.
Cons: Will not focus in low light, hot flash over exposed every picture I took with it. Menu buttons are the worst. I'm very dissapointed with Nikon as this was the first I've owned and know people that swear by Nikon. Went with the Minolta A1 wow what a differ

The camera will not focus under conditions when you normally need a flash!
