Without manipulation, most likeable colours straight from Jpeg under most conditions. Can do A3 size. Long lasting battery (as D300). Body motor. Light weight compare with Fujifilm S5 Pro.
And all the rest you name it: dust on sensor, slow AF, low useable ISO, few AF points, low frame rate.
I bought it new back in 2006 and still going strong. Vivid colours under good lighting with low ISO (like slide film!). Has Fujichrome Velvia colour straight from Jpeg. Great skin tone (for Chinese) under different and difficult lighting conditions. Best for people and scenic.
