Rented this body as a second camera to have for shooting a wedding to keep extra lenses readily available for shooting, and my assistant and I played around with it a little. It's very similar to the D3000, D60, etc. The video mode was easy to use (only downfall was lack of autofocus in video) Has a few extra autofocus points than the previous entry level DSLR's. Controls were very intuitive and easy to figure out. The swivel LCD screen could come in handy if doing self portraits or shooting from odd angles remote. Images were consistent & good up to about 600 ISO. All-in-all was very happy with this rental & of course borrowlenses customer service was top notch.
