Not much to say yet, just picked it up and battery is charging.

Very happy about the size, was afraid I might have found it too big. Coat pocketable looks practical as will keeping it in my briefcase as my carry everywhere cam.

Can't wait, big priority is video. I really wanted a full-time AF video-shooting camera. My older daughter is performing and singing in a professional play starting this week, and I hope to record at least her solos for my elderly Aunt in Victoria when we go and visit her on her 90th. I have a lot of plans for wildlife too, but yes lots and lots of amateur (and hopefully more pro!) theatre opportunities to come.

First impressions:
- Lenses mount "straight up and down" and you twist then 30 degrees counter-clockwise as opposed to F-mount where they mount 30 degrees to the right and end up straight up and down.
- camera feels solid and even a bit heavy, like a small heavy brick.
- 10-30 lens is a featherweight.
- external flash is teeny tiny.
- no other accessories available yet - the 30-110 is a priority for me.
- one of the very first to arrive in Canada. My dealer only received 2 kits! The other kit that arrived was the WA-prime kit.
- am super happy about the shared battery with my D7000.

Best regards, SteveK
