reasonably low through ISO 800; effective noise reduction system - Noisier than others at high ISO settings

Good sharpness results; excellent dynamic range for high-contrast shooting; effective image stabilization - Chromatic aberration noticeable at image edges

White Balance
Highly accurate automatic white balance system - Custom white balance produced disappointing results

Nice selection of playback views; easy navigation; full-featured video playback; extensive direct print options - Lacks in-camera editing capabilities

Excellent textured grip; dual control dials; easy-to-manage menu system; first-rate user manual - Multi-controller joystick feels imprecise

Video Section

Color & Noise
Strong saturation levels; noise levels were very good in bright light. - Color accuracy not quite as good as the competition.

Motion & Sharpness
Good motion performance in both 24p and 30p frame rates. - Sharpness a bit lower than other DSLRs that shoot 1080p video.

Low Light Performance
Very good low light performance all around

Video Features
Manual controls are easy to use in conjunction with video mode; 3.5mm external mic jack is a nice touch. - No live autofocus; stationary LCD makes shooting hand-held video difficult.
