I just want to post this to counter the imbalance towards complaints that tends to dominate most forums.
I have had my outfit now for 7 months and have shot off around 1000 photos and I must say, it is the best all round performer I have ever owned. I have not had any bad shots that weren't due to my errors. The outfit will nail the shot for me every time, even in difficult cercumstances. I have taken pictures in conditions I previously would have avoided( almost dark dungeons with out flash,inside the Hermitage Museum St Petersburg, where flash is not allowed and is deliberately poorly lit in places)and have been amazed at the results that I have got. Well done Nikon.
I am no professional and I am not saying that there isn't a better oufit out there.What I am doing is giving credit where it is due.
I would like to thank all of you out there who helped steer me towards this outfit.
A special thankyou to MT Climber, aka Sarah Joyce for her adviceand information.
