    I use it occasionally for landscape type shooting. It seems to work pretty good at the mild or moderate settings, but can look pretty bad beyond that. I use DxO software for post-processing which does a better job. The Photoshop shadow/highlight filter can do a better job too if you have time to fiddle. The Active D-lighting on the newer Nikons (D300, D3) is supposedly a ton better, so hopefully this will trickle down to future lower end models.
