Summary: I bought this camera kit as a Christmas present for my "shutter-bug" Wife and she absolutely loves it! This kit came LOADED with extra goodies that I would have probably paid much more if purchased seperately. I bought this camera after doing research on it and I was fortunate enough to have actually tried using one that a good samaritan let me try. The results were amazing! By far the best quality pictures I have seen for this format. Worth every penny!
Summary: Great camera and I'm very pleased after 10 months of use. I have a variety of lenses (Nikon 16-85VR, 50 1.8, and 70-300 VR, plus Sigma 10-20, 150 macro and 150-500) and camera has worked fine with all of them. I have had none of the focus issues mentioned, but I did a AF Fine Tune to correct slight back focus on the 16-85 at 85 and full aperture.
Summary: I hope that you never need to send your camera to Nikon under warranty. It is almost impossible to get the information about the status and the speed of service is really slow. Nikon practically does not care about the number of days, they hold the camera in the service department.
Summary: If you're willing to spend this kind of money, it's the camera to buy. I must confess, I never picked up a Canon to compare, but I have access to Nikon lenses so I stuck with Nikon. Having said that, I couldn't be happier. My goodness what a camera! I own, and still love, the Canon G11, but this is my first DSLR and I don't regret buying it for a moment. I can no longer blame the camera for bad images, it's all on me now.
Summary: mine didnt come with prints but i liked it. I would reccomend purchasing the whole part instead of the body and then the lens. It was a satisfieng deal. This camera has very high quality and is top of the line.
