Engadget Review

Nikon's first mirrorless camera has a stylish design, but performance misses the mark for pro and other advanced users.

This is an expensive EVIL camera, it doesn't excel in image quality. Doesn't has the best lens line up (The Nikon F mount adaptor gives you a 2.6 crop factor, which makes a wide lens became portrait lens). It starts quickly. Focusing is really great and accurate. It always know what you're trying to focus which is really good. The image quality is more or less the same as those expensive point and shoot camera. I would categorize this camera as a point and shoot camera with interchangeable lens. The body is made of plastic, but it feels pretty high quality and nicely built. The lens however feels cheap. I have both the kit zoom and the wide lens. Both suffer from fringing in high contrast area. I sold mine in about a week after I got them. It's way too expensive for what it offer.
