Like it's predecessors Rocky Nook does it again. The book is thick so I suggest you not try to get through it without your camera nearby. This is one book that I can actually consider purchasing two of, one to highlight and make border comments, the other in my library with my other Nikon books.

well written and clear. organized. much more than just a technical book about apiece of equipment. the author sounds human and fairly passionate about the camera. ignore the useless 1-star rating that's first in the list. this is an excellent book.

Is B&N so eager to get reviews for books they sell, that they ask you to review your purchase two months before it even is published?
