...has the same AF module as the F/N80, so it should behave nearly identically. I own both the D100 and the N80, and I can't tell any difference in shutter lag between them. The D100 essentially behaves like an SLR, becuase...it is one. Both the N80 and the D100 have flash compensation: on the N80 the control is next the the shutter release; on the D100 it has been moved to the back left of the camera. (Essentially, the positions of the flash mode button and the flash compensation buttons have been reversed on the D100 compared to the N80.) Perhaps flash compensation is called different things on these two cameras, but the effect of the controls is exactly the same. If you enjoy the N80, you will feel right at home with the D100. Personally I like the idea of separating the flash and exposure compensation controls, as I confused them often on the N80 since they are right next to each other. The exposure compensation is used more often, so it makes sense to leave it by the shutter release closest to right edge of the camera.
