Easy to use controls, no "program" modes a big plus. Autofocus could be faster and doesn't perfect well in the dark.

Great Camera ! Easy to use , every control that you need is at your fingertips. The dials that you need the most are large ... you don't have to fidget with them.
The only feature this camera lacks is mirror lock-up.
Otherwise it's every bit as good as the more expensive models.

Great Camera, the dials are easy to use, the only problem I have found is the buttons are too loose, and setting are easily changed when pulling the camera in and out of a camera case.
