My knew V2 arrived this morning. My very first impressions, overall, are good. Here is a very simple, very initial Pro / Con review:

Pros
- Handles well. I like the feel of the grip.
- "Image Review" option under the playback menu allows shut off of review after shot
- Actual ISO is displayed in the viewfinder and screen instead of the Auto ISO setting
- On/Off ring around the shutter release button makes for faster/easier power up
- 0bvious, improved placement of mode dial
- Rear command dial instead of the "up/down" button

Cons
- New battery: EN-EL21 (may not be a con for everybody)
- Hopefully a non-issue: the on/off and shutter release button do not seem to be as "solid" as I've come to expect Nikon controls to be. They "wobble" a bit.
