"Unbelievable camera for the price! Pro Quality"4.5 starson by CrimeandPun
Pros: Great range of features for beginning SLR users without overkill
Cons: Poor kit lens
Summary: This is one amazing camera. I just got back from Ireland and used this camera for the first time over there. My friends have all seen the shots and were blown away, as was I. I'm talking, these are shots suitable for poster size enlargement!!
There have been complaints about the autofocus, but it just takes some getting used to, as well as the ability and time to work with it and figure it out (you can always go manual of course too).
The only thing I'm glad I changed was upgrading from the kit lens to a Canon EFS 17-85mm IS USM lens. This lens is quite amazing for just a general purpose lens. I do plan on buying a specialty zoom sometime. I got a great deal on the camera through Cameta Camera auctions on Ebay. I highly recommend buying a package because you will get a bag, a higher capacity flash card, and other necessary gear to enjoy this camera at a serious discount.
This camera is challenging enough to keep me interested for quite a long time, but not so tough that I'm lost...if your budget is under $1200.00 for the package deal, get the upgraded lens!!
