Hall of Famer

It helps, but I hate having to switch modes. Also, even in macro mode you can't get all that close. It's a let down.Macro mode?
Thanks, Jason. Performance is nothing special. To call the AF speed "average" is to be charitable. Any of the current MFT cameras focuses a LOT faster. Image quality seems very good. More soon...Amin,
Excelent hands on first look. I can't wait to see your impressions on performance and image quality.
Well I (respectfully, and partly) disagree with your statement. I think the LL reviewer was mostly thinking about the D3, which was the first Nikon pro DSLR that really put Nikon ahead of Canon for a category of users (spectacular high iso performance at the time of its release), whereas the previous D1 and D2 series were not very good value against the Canon offering of the time, and many thought that Nikon was "going down". The D700, as a "baby D3" has also been extremely popular among pro and enthusiats. And the D3S significantly improved what was already Nikon's strong point by offering even higher low light performance, along with the very advanced autofocus system of the D3.As far as I was aware their product range has almost exactly mirrored Canon's up until the launch of the V1 and J1 late last year.
