After looking closer at the specs in dpreview, I may not be gobsmacked (not sure what that is exactly), but I can now see a reason for ugrading from a D5100 for my 2nd body. The video improvements seem to be impressive as well. The AF-F is supposedly an improvemnt, as well as the improved resolution/fps. I would hope that it doesn't require video to be shot in Aperture mode. When you have a lens with no external aperture control, this can be problematic. It may just be me, but I hate shoooting video in Liveview. The reflection can get me. I once shot a 45 second video of grass growing while I watched myself on the articulating monitor. Not good.
