Good: 8 million pixels and good lens produce high quality photos, preset scenes. Loads of menu settings
Bad: It's slow, writing files seems to take an age, even worse in RAW
Comment: If you're not in a hurry, this camera produces some fantastic images. The 15 preset scenes are very good, recently used it for a fireworks display and the images were excellent. Also has a panoramic mode that helps position each shot. A very good stepping stone before a DSLR. I have printed 16x12-inch images that are very sharp. A very good all-rounder.
Good: Super sharp lens; Excellent image quality at fine+ settings; Vibration reduction
Bad: Noise at faster ISO settings; Poor battery life per full charge; Menus could be better.
Comment: This camera produces very high quality images, but is no speed merchant. The VR is so good, I can get good results hand held at full tele at 1/30th sec. Macro is also good, but Nikon is not the only maker now that provides good macro. The camera handles well. 400 ISO is for emergencies only, as noise is high at this setting. The worst feature is the life per full charge of the EN-EL7 battery, which is poor. This camera makes high demands on the battery, and it should have been much higher capacity.
