Headline sounds like a Ken Rockwell polemic. Its not. Its not even a real quote, I made it up. And I don't intend to argue the case for that statement either.
The camera body is just superb. Its very metallic and heavier than I thought. With the grip attached its very nice to handle.
Viewfinder is excellent. More or less polaroid sunglasses friendly.
It uses the same battery as my Nikon D800E and (hooray!) there is a % indicator for how much battery life there is left.
It has an electronic shutter. Totally silent.
It has ISO 100.
Menu system is simple and uncluttered.
AF and VR for my Nikon G lenses with the adapter.
Sensor for moving between EVF and screen.
Manual Focus has the same white dot confirmation system as my D800E.
Stereo mini-jack for non-proprietry microphones.
Very flat colour balance.
Restrained noise reduction on low ISO jpgs.
Only 10 MP, so not pushing the sensor too far.
Lenses small and light and well made.
