Thanks for finding the picture.

I actually don't have much of a problem with the hybrid body build, after 5 years of pretty constant use, my D70s still looks great and has served well. My D200, of course, is far better built and has been a workhorse so there is definitely something to the metal body cameras.

I think what I like, spec-wise, is that Nikon uprated the shutter from 100k actuations and 1/4000th of a second on the D90 to 150k new camera and increased max shutter speed to 1/8000th of a second along with the weather sealing. These are very D300-like features.

I still want to see some images though, I am curious if there is any real improvement in noise handling with such dinky pixels. In fact, I am curious to see if Nikon even stayed even with the D90. It had the best sensor of the 12mpixel DX cameras.
