Kit lens

The official kit will ship with the somewhat old -- circa 2013 -- but still decent all-in-one zoom 18-140mm f3.5-5.6 lens.

Button cluster

Now the metering button is in the confusing column with the less frequently used controls.

Only one card slot

Somewhere along the way, Nikon dropped the second SD card slot that's in the older models.
