Pros: Ease of use plus great studio work, although i mainly use 28-105 Nikkor lens, the results have been superb, i always shoot in Jpeg mode, (and coming from a retouching background i don't feel there is much of a difference between shooting Jpeg and Raw) and then do any post production work in Photoshop, (adding USM, Saturation, levels etc)
Battery consumption was a problem until i switched to rechargeable, now not too much of an issue. Dust on the sensor is a hassle but i quick check in Photoshop gets rid of any that might appear, plus regular cleaning with a swab keeps things pretty clean.

I use this camera for general photographic work, studio and on location. Macro shots are excellent, i do a lot of jewellery images with extension tubes and find the results are superb. I also do portrait work, some of which have been enlarged to A1 posters, which the client has been very happy with. My local camera shop here in Auckland advised this one against the D100 as most of my work was studio based, and i have to say i haven't regretted it. All in all, a very capable camera.
