Moved up from D80. VERY pleased so far, but as others have noted the manual will take some study. Shot indoors in 1880's houses today at 2000 ISO (would NEVER go there on D80) to success with 50mm 1.4G at 3.2 or so. LOW light,b/c small windows in these old houses. NICE. No noise. Good color rendition.
Shot some flowers at botanical gardens at lunch with native 100 ISO. Had to use -7 EV (right at home for me as D80 shooter). NICE images, much sharper than D80 (& I was fine with D80 there in enough light). Nice IQ, and with FX I FINALLY can shoot above f8 and actually see a WIDE DOF! As though I were back in film days. It was a sunny 16 kind of day.
Needs a dedicated AF-ON button. Programmed Func button on front to do this. Easy to get used to this, but.......
Played a little with the video - wish could shoot looking thru view finder (maybe you can and I do not know how yet) for steadier panning, buit will used tripod if serious about this.
