Thanks for the encouragement. I'm pretty pleased with this camera after going over it with the proverbial fine-toothed comb. I reset all the menus and upgraded the firmware. I haven't bought a used camera since my Minolta X700, and I was a little apprehensive.
The commonality of the controls and menus (from my D300s), and the overall handling are great. I'm looking forward to better weather so I can get outside and shoot some. It's been bitter cold and snowing for over a week now!
