I've only had my D30 for a month, despite buying it 2nd hand i cant fault it yet, images are sharp and well exposed once you get the hang of the histograp function and exposure compensation. it might only be 3.1 mega pixels but if your using quality optics it wont mater end of the day this has a better resolution than the Nikon D1 pro camera .
If you have small hands then you can handle this camera with ease, if not then like me you will need to buy the battery booster grip which as well as giving you more camera to grip and the added battery capacity it also makes the camera look more profesional.
For printing I would keep the enlargements to 8"x10" which for most people is more than adequate althought i understand its capable of producing 11"x14" prints.
All in all a camera very well suited to a beginger to digital photography, if you already use Eos camera then you will be able to use this as soon as you load a memory card
