Pros: It's built solid. I love the viewfinder compared to the D70, and the image quality is a huge jump in quality. Highlights hold together great and tones are very deep and accurate. The camera itself handles smoothly and the AF is responsive. It's not quite as fast as the D2h/x but at least it doesn't feel sluggish like the D70. The feature set is massive (memory banks are great), and you get almost the same functionality as the SU-800 with the built-in flash.
Cons:
Nit picks really. The AF sensors are oriented too close to the center. Also the far sensors aren't as accurate as the centor sensor. The rubber on the front sometimes causes the sub dial to stick. The viewfinder doesn't provide full 100% coverage, and you'll probably need at least 2 batteries to get through a full shoot.
