Strengths: A natural move from a Nikon film SLR. Performs well under heavy use.
Weakness: Minimal dust protection
I purchased the D100 just a few months after it was introduced and with it, I bought the Nikon 24-85mm macro and 70-300mm lenses with the MB-D100 battery pack. Since then I have produced over 45,000 images without any problems. I am absolutely satisfied with its performance and the quality of the images produces.

I purchased the D100 just a few months after it was introduced and with it, I bought the Nikon 24-85mm macro and 70-300mm lenses with the MB-D100 battery pack. Since then I have produced over 45,000 images without any problems. I am absolutely satisfied with its performance and the quality of the images produces. This camera provides enough options to challenge the most adventurous photographer. The consistent sensor field of view crop of 1.5x throughout the D series dSLR’s makes lens selection easier when shooting on assignment.
The on demand grid lines on the focusing screen is advantageous for anyone who shoots landscape and architectural images. ISO boost to two stops over 1600 ISO is perfect for concert photography and other low light situations.
The D100 has the feel of my professional Nikon film bodies and fits my hand in a familiar way. All the controls are easy to use without taking my eye from the viewfinder.
Since I purchased my first D100; I bought a Nikon 12-24mm, SB-D50x flash and another D100 with MB-D100. I like the added weight of the MB-D100 and the additional battery power benefit goes without saying.
The only reason NOT to purchase the D100 would be if you had enough money lying around to buy the D2X.

Strengths: Ease of use. Compatability with existing lenses and SB28 flash. No useless video system.
Weakness: You need a programme to work on the NEF (raw) files. Nikon capture should come with the camera.
Having owned a F90X for several years it was very easy to understand the controls. Like using a 35mm camera.The flexibility in being able to change the ISO midstream is a real boon. Not having to change rolls of film, right when you need to take that all important shot.I enjoy using the D100, I wish I had of bought one earlier.

Strengths: flexibility of use & it allows use of all nikon lenses
Weakness: size & weight, but that's a small tradeoff for the flexibility of using all the nikon & 3rd party lenses
Bought it Thanksgiving 2002 and haven't used any silver process film since. Put on an AF lens and shoot slowly, and it's almost foolproof. Just got the new 24-85 "G" lens and the show shoot is history. Don't look for the latest, Nikon seems to have gotten it right straight from the beginning.

Strengths: Easy, intuitive operation. Excellent pix. and software. Amazing battery life.
Weakness: 180th x-synch speed should be 250 or 500. Screw-in cable release silly -- should accept MC-20 ten-pin.
This is what I've waited for -- reasonably-priced digital body that allows me to use my many existing Nikkor lenses. They've done an excellent job. Easy to learn and use. Easy, good, bug-free software. Best flash-controls in the business. Optional SB-800 really completes the package. I shouldn't have waited so long. Very impressed.

Strengths: Ecellent Film like images. Marvelous Autofocus. Low Noise.
Weakness: Smaller Buffer
I had a chance to test Canon 10D with D100 recently. I found D100 much better in autofocus speed and performance mainly in low light situation. (AF assist was turned off). Noise in D100 is almost equal or lesser uptil ISO 800 and quite less at ISO 3200. Also there are no Front focusing or back focusing issues with D100 while digital photography reviews site forums are full of complains about...

I had a chance to test Canon 10D with D100 recently. I found D100 much better in autofocus speed and performance mainly in low light situation. (AF assist was turned off).
Noise in D100 is almost equal or lesser uptil ISO 800 and quite less at ISO 3200.
Also there are no Front focusing or back focusing issues with D100 while digital photography reviews site forums are full of complains about focusing problems and lens miscalibration problems with 10D. Many users had to send camera twice or thrice to Canon and still couldn't get it fixed.
In my opnion Nikon D100 is the best choice for the price range. And with DX lenses it also offers full range of wide angle photography which is unavailable with anyother camera in this class.
