Excerpt: I wore the shutter out on my D300 and so finally upgraded. Wow! The viewfinder alone is worth it; I can see so much more clearly through it. It's a pound heavier, but is so solid I don't mind. I will have more time this winter to explore its many advanced functions.
Excerpt: This camera is the "cats meow", except for the memory card slots. As everybody knows, it should have come with dual slots of the same memory type. This would have eliminated alot of problems with card incompatiblity with the XQD slot.
Pros: Fast shutter speed, superior image quality, Ultra fast focus
Excerpt: Top notch high speed sports machine. Have used it indoors ( water polo) with a 400mm 2.8 lens - ISO range is great for low light. Also used it for rugby and the 1/8,000 second shutter speed + 11 fps is an awesome combination. Last weekend, for the first time I did have the camera lock up on me. It wouldn't turn off , nor would the shutter trigger. I managed to re-set it by removing the battery, but will keep an eye on this. Would give it 5 stars but for that glitch.
