Editors Didn't Like

  • Small pentamirror viewfinder
  • Fixed LCD
  • Kit lens could be better
  • Perhaps 24 megapixels might be overkill for entry-level users
  • No auto exposure bracketing or optical depth-of-field preview
  • Complicated menu system
  • Underused command dial
  • No built-in AF motor so can't auto-focus with non AF-S lenses
  • No live histogram
  • Slight blue cast on LCD display in some lighting conditions
  • Relatively high price
