"Top of the line-amazing in so many aspects."5.0 starson by msterling1
Pros: Simply everything. The AF is amazing, the kit-lens is spectacular, it feel ultra-comfortable in hands, well-worth the money I spent, durable, portable, probably now considered an essential on vacations and special outings.
Cons: Nothing. I haven't found much wrong at all.
Summary: When I first started looking into Dslrs, I thought I should go for a low-priced camera. However, I leap-frogged from a point and shoot to this camera. I must say, it took a little while to get used to, but not too long. It feels perfect in my hands. The AF is extremely accurate; it rarely fails, but when it does, MF captures just as much detail. I've had a couple months with this camera now, and I must say, it is most-definitely one of the best. I can rely on it to take a shot when I need it. Not to mention, I can rely on the Auto, however I prefer Creative Auto so that I can change some settings. The flash works very well. There is a very limited amount of noise at high ISO levels.
I have become so attached and love the camera so much that I've actually named it Jason. If that doesn't sum up how amazing this camera is, I am more than willing to continue.
It works in hight humidity (Florida), rain, and freezing temperatures. I can rely on the 18MP to get the shot that I need, even if am unable to 'zoom' far enough. Cropping still gives me a sharp and crisp photo. The colors in the camera come out mostly true, only in bright oranges and hot-pinks are there color issues, minor. However, that can always be fixed by adjusting your settings. The viewfinder is a perfect size, at least for someone like me. The video capture is absolutely amazing.
I haven't once failed, using this camera, to capture a particular moment in time that passes by quickly because of the fast shutterspeed options.
This camera is definitely worth the price, probably even more. Way better than the Nikon D300s, and Canon Rebel T2i. You will not regret buying this amazing investment.
