I rather like this camera. It’s a little on the heavy side, but I like its solid feel. Judging from the results the matrix metering is accurate and I like that it will also meter with manual lenses (but unfortunately not in matrix mode). If found the controls to be simple, intuitive and easy to use. I was pleased to see that the camera uses a standard cable release rather than the proprietary electronic releases that you generally find.
To me the most significant negative aspect was the lack of a depth of field preview. It also lacks mirror lockup and a provision for multiple exposures, but since I don’t use these I don’t miss them as much as I do the DOF preview. I’m a fan of vertical grips, but unfortunately the N6006 doesn’t support one. The autofocus is a bit slow and noisy, but since I’m not into either action or wildlife photography it met my needs quite well. The top panel LCD is not backlit so you cant read it at night, which is a bit of a disadvantage. Also the batteries are relatively expensive and not all that easy to find.
