Excellent metering, powerfull motors, fast, very reliable, low maintenance, good in dark enviroment, fast shutter speeds.
Loud shutter, sometimes it takes longer to configure certain option-learning curve is longer to get used to it.
I owned a Nikon F90X for about 8 years. I have used this camera for a wedding photography several times as a pro and it did a fantastic job. I am using it with Nikon sb28 speedlight, which is one of the best flashes I have ever owned, very reliable.
If you are looking for a light build camera, this is not one of them. Nikon F90x body is on the heavy side, but I like heavier cameras. The shutter is loud, so it can be disturbing in certain situations-like the weddings, but that's the way this camera is. Very reliable, solid, perfect metering in single or continuos shutter mode. I have tkaen thousands of photographs and the maintenace was just cleaning, nothing ever broke. It's servo motors can handle big zoom lenses like Sigma APO 500 with no problems. I took it with me to F1 racing in Toronto as well as to Woodbine Horse track and this camera never missed of miss-focused a shot. It has the advanced options like macro, HF or landscape, but I don't use them too often. Shutter speed ranges up to 1/8000 s, which is almost unusable, but there are situations you could used them altough not very often-like the F1 racing.
Overall, very reliable, worth the money bottom line pro camera.
