Pros: It's a fantastic piece! As a person who is sensitive to mechanical devices, I am thorouhly impressed. Fast, simple (in auto-mode) beautiful focusing and incredible continuous shooter.
Cons:
Don't know yet.

No doubt, I am an ameteur. I have been shooting with a Nikon 8700 for 6 months as I continue to develop my skills and define my shooting style. I've learned Mac, Photoshop 7 and CS, along with composure, lighting and subject material. What I have learned during the "Nikon Period" are the compromises which are made in point-and-shoot equipment. I shot a bunch of images at Ye Olde Camera Shoppe with the 20D connected to a EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens. Sheesh! Autofocus faster than a speeding bullet! Image Stabilization! Heavenly! Build quality; Divine! The lens felt sturdier than the camera body, but the combined unit felt balanced and highly capable. Best of all, when I loaded my images into CS, they were perfect with virtually no editing required. It's easy to see where the money went in this jewel of a camera. Even with the lens exceeding the cost of the camera, the price is worth it. The experience well surpassed my expectations, and I will own the aforementioned set-up within a few weeks.
