I have been photographing for over 15 years and have owned a Nikon now for the past two weeks. Sadly, it is the worst camera I have ever owned. My 3.2 Olympus point shoot takes far far far better pictures! This purchase has been a major major disappointment to me and I had looked forward to it for so long. The camera focus mechanism is very poor, the picture quality is awful, and the colors are terrible unless you do extreme post PC processing. Don't believe all the excellent reviews you read on this camera!!! Don't buy it. I traded my first in after the third day because I thought it was defective. Same problem with the second camera. All images are dark and not in focus, changing exposure, metering (sm,cm), mode (aperature, shutter, auto, manual) etc. Nothing at all makes a difference. I've taken thousands of pictures in the last 2 weeks and have concluded that I don't care how much of a financial loss I incur, the camera is going back to the shop or in the garbage can if they won't take it back.
