A nice, low-cost entry-level DSLR, but in today’s market, good enough may not be good enough. Very high image quality for its class, but sluggish AF and odd omissions—such as autoexposure bracketing—had us scratching our heads. Testing of its replacement, the D3100, to occur soon.

Standout Spec: 420-zone Matrix metering system.
