    I bought this camera 3 days ago and it’s only because of the zoom. I use the Nikon D90 on a daily basis. I needed something big for bird photography. What are the advantages: zoom and light compared to a 600mm lens for an SLR camera. Cons: 1 / AF is not too fast, besides, after losing the object from the sight, it runs off, 2 / quality at 3000mm at a distance of approx. 300m is poor – razor up to 50m. 3 / The manual mode is tragic – much faster in the SLR, 4 / The settings menu is a weakness compared to the D90, and it’s been a while since the premiere of the D90. 5 / Battery: on full charge I took 115 photos and one movie for 3 minutes – a failure because I used the zoom often. NIKON engineers seem to have missed this case.

    For such a large zoom with focal length adjustment by means of a motor they put a compact battery. Congratulations. Even a battery twice as large would be too small. In addition, the battery charge indicator from 15 years ago – there is not even a percentage in the menu, which could help to assess the situation at least a little. My final opinion is: if someone needs a large lens, I recommend it boldly, but the price should be lower for a poor menu and a battery. In the outdoors, one battery is for warming up.
