    you can read the review here
    http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/14N/14NA.HTM

    summarise the pro and con :
    Pro:
    • Fantastic resolution
    • Full-frame sensor permits true wide angle D-SLR photography
    • Excellent color
    • Very good tonality
    • Excellent highlight headroom in DCR RAW files
    • ERI (Extend Range Imaging) JPEG format combines power of RAW files with compatibility of JPEG
    • Dual-card (CF and SD) supports flexible workflows
    • Simultaneous dual-mode (RAW/JPEG) file recording is a nice touch
    • Compatibility with Nikon lenses is a plus
    • Fully field-upgradeable firmware is a big plus
    • Much lower cost than the competition (Canon EOS-1Ds)
    • All-magnesium alloy frame should be very rugged


    Con:
    • Noisy sensor forces tradeoff of low-contrast subject detail
    • Lack of antialiasing filter results in artifacts and color aliasing
    • Poor high-ISO performance
    • Poor long-exposure performance
    • Too-short buffer length (max 7 frames, only 4 in JPEG mode)
    • Slow buffer-empty times
    • Short battery life
    • 0.5 EV exposure steps are too coarse
    • Unsophisticated AF system
    • Despite magnesium frame, camera feels more prosumer than pro.
