Finnally, mine's here! Had to sell all my DX kit (gripped D7K, 16-85, 35 1.8), plus some guitar-related bits, but now it's here!

First impressions: body and controls much like the D7000 (which I love), great viewfinder, great back display, nice shutter action, nice crips files even at ISO 6400. The cluttering of AF points does not bother me, since I use back-button focus and recompose. Managed to get all my settings dialed in a couple of minutes, feels like using an old friend with a much improved sensor. The 50mm f1.8G got on it, and it will stay there for several months now. Only other lens I've kept is a 70-300 VR, and my SB-700 is also still aboard.

Couldn't be happier!

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.
