We tested the camera with a 24-85mm Nikkor VR lens. The auto-focus is exemplary, latching on to the subject in a split second. The camera has 51 AF points, but as you shoot you see just the ones that are coming into play. But what is the real advantage of the having a 36 MP camera? We took a shot of Delhi’s Connaught Place and were able to crop a high-resolution image of just one shop window, sans noise or distortion. That is where the mega pixels make a difference. While the focusing was as fast, the processing of pictures inexplicably took longer in Live mode. The purists will not use this mode much, even otherwise it is better to use this mode for video. The ultimate results were everything that we expected it to be, though it seemed a bit too sharp at times. It captures subtle changes in colour tones and light plays.
