If you can set one of the programmable buttons to metering, since it has an exposure comp button, and I'd be pretty much set as well. Those basic controls are all I really used on my Nikon bodies.2 dials and an iso button, I'm good to go
(1 dial bodies don't work well for me)
even 1 sd card slot is OK, I sold most of my CF cards but I have SD for my D500 and D850
According to DPR, it's a UHS-II slot which is plenty fast for stills and even mid-grade 4k video. Though the exclusion of USB Type-C and only including Micro USB seems a bit backwards.I will have to ponder this one, it clearly is a a mixed bag (I know I'm not in the target group here)
- No IBIS I think is a mistake (for me), since the other Z lenses rely on it in the Z6-7, they are not a good match for this camera (for my shooting)
- SD card is ok but UHS-I (common Nikon!), and I can only guess what the buffer is since it is nowhere to be found online right now = not very large, so it is not a birding camera not a D500 birding replacement.
- Size ergonomics sensor, looks real good for a walkaround, will be compared to a Canon M6MKII though at 32 MP though.
- For me this is up against my Canon M5, 24 mp, 7fps (laughable buffer) And there is not much to gain here compared to it (Yes better sensor and Eye AF). I could sell my little M5 with that amazing 22mm Pancake lens for maybe $550-600 at the very best add another grand after tax, and what do it get that's better? Nikon ergonomics, a little bigger in my (XL-sized) hands, better AF which is a biggie, a better low ISO and DR sensor, and just two native (DX) lenses for now. HMMMMM
SD (Secure Digital) and UHS-I compliant SDHC and SDXC memory cards

friends"friends" once tried hard to convince me (and a few others) that my D850 was many steps below his wife's D3500, after all, higher number names are always better.

The top has an exposure Comp +/- button. But it looks like I missed this on the screen, though I'd prefer a physical button I can press/hold/turn a dial.Please Explain
To me this is a very smart move by Nikon ... you have to remember the large mainly point & shoot crowd who uses their phones or d3100’s left on auto all the time ...
Now there’s a option for a small Nikon mirrorless available for a good price — shoot you can even buy the 2 lens package and be all set ..
It’s gotta be attractive and I bet it’ll do very well .
To me no IBIS is no big deal — hey d850’s and d5’s don’t have it either . No it’s not perfect, no camera is but it’s damn intriguing.
Not everyone is as deeply interested in photography as we are or has thousands of dollars to sink into a system or maybe they’re just picking up photography and Nikon hasn’t forgotten them ..
Nicely done Nikon ...
