Good: Overall Feel, clarity and control, traditional features, versatility
Bad: choice of accessories (now becoming better). Battery life when tethered
Comment: I could not have made an informed opinion until now, having learned so much about the camera in the last year and upgrading to first class optics I can safely say its one of the best cameras I have ever owned. (I have owned a fair few). The sensor is amazing as is the dynamic range settings. I have studied the settings and experimented over the menu surrounding it and have completely wiped out the few skirmishes it caused in Photoshop. Initially everyone latched onto the ISO noise and I too stuck to the low numbers for safe shooting but if you can master the DR then you will have no issues. HDR is terrific - shooting the 3 shots with only one shutter movement. All the nice bits are there too - mirror up, preview etc. However, if live view is your thing and Video along with it ... get a Canon. I tend to buy video cameras for Video and at my age and the years behind a viewfinder... I tend to not miss live view. Besides - tethering is tops in my studio. I recommend this camera on value, quality of build, image quality and some very crisp lenses.
