>I would guess it's because D100 is not a point & shoot
>camera and is not optimized to be such.

I keep seeing this argument on the various mailing lists and bulletin boards, where the out-of-the-box deficiences of the D100 is twisted around as some kind of indication of that it SHOULD be this (difficult) way with the D100.

I just want to know .. why the hell isn't the D100 optimized to be a point & shoot camera out-of-the-box ?? Is there ANY reason on earth that the default settings shouldn't be better than they are ??

You could take the F100 or F5 or any other Nikon film body out-of-the-box and load film and set it to program mode and it will work perfectly. Why shouldn't it be this way with the D100 ??

I resent the fact that I had to go through all the trouble of manipulating and uploading a custom tone curve to get images which are consistently good straight-from-the-camera that need minimal tweaking.
