Summary: I have several NIKON cameras, film and digital. I think the cameras NIKON of robustness commendable; in addition, this brand has a wide variety of high quality lenses. The important thing is that I use a lot of old lenses on cameras that I have today, because his bayonet system is always the same (a great respect for the consumer). So admire the NIKON.
Summary: For me the size of the camera with the addition of the battery grip make for a well balanced and easy (for me) to handle unit. I use this model with an 18-200 lens, which is an all around excellent lens. No need to be changing fixed focal length lenses in the middle of a shoot. You are able to set the camera to produce images with 300 dpi which allows for easy enlarging to 11x14 or 16x20 images for printing and framing.
Tough, fast, flexible and produces high quality images.

Summary: Still a winner despite being ancient in digital years. Tough, fast, flexible, great image quality without sucking up all of the space on your memory card, and the older model like this one can often be had at bargain prices.
