    I like it...Its a very nice camera which takes high quality shots. The only
    thing better is a pro level SLR digital.

    I recently had mine 5700 stolen. and I was not broken-hearted The camera was
    for me very noisy in the image, I had had Nikon Coolpix 950, 990, & still
    have a 995, Which seems to me to be less noisy, but a nearly as good image
    if one accounts resampling the file up to the same size as a 5700.
    See samples on my image server. The work this year from April up to labour
    day taken with 5700, earlier work by older Coolpix.

  5. Ultimately, your choice should be whatever camera you personally like
    the best. If you are not comfortable with a camera it will make a
    lousy photographic tool, in spite of what everyone else's opinion may
    be. If you've looked at the 5700 and like it, buy one!

    OK, with that said here's my opinion... ;-)

    I own a Nikon 5700 and absolutely love it. The Nikon 5700 has
    completely redefined the way that I do photography. A bit of a
    learning curve was required to learn how to properly utilize this
    camera, but now that my new techniques are in place I find that
    photography has never been easier or more enjoyable. The 5700
    represents a huge step forward in photographic technology. If you're
    willing to learn a few new things, and let go of some antiquated
    techniques, the Nikon 5700 is a superb photographic tool for
    advanced/professional photographers. If you are interested, I have
    some additional comments on my website:

    I got the Coolpix 5700 this past summer and have already taken over 3000
    pictures
    with it. It works great for what I do which is mostly wildlife and a few
    portrait photography. The only thing better would be a digital SLR but then
    you have to buy all those expense lens and worry about dust getting on your
    CCD. Next time you are at a camera store pick up the coolpix and hold it,
    if it feels right in your hands then get it.

    http://www.dotphoto.com/go.asp?l=Walden+Photography&AID=1122258 here are
    just a few pictures taken with my Nikon Coolpix 5700 and a 1.5x
    teleconverter lens.

    Good luck
