Summary: This camera was discontinued by Canon in 2008 and Amazon seems to be the only place in the nation where "new" EOS Rebel K2 SLR's with the 28-90 mm lens in stock and listed as new. Canon does not support that view of the situation so you are on your own if problems develop. Happened to me with a used one rated a 9 that had half a dozen or more serious defects. I will get a credit for the camera but am stuck with extra lenses and filters, etc.
Summary: I wasn't expecting it to arrive so soon, but it only took two days! I was so happy. I needed it urgently since my last one somehow stopped working. : / I think this one works better than the one I had lol. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase~!
Summary: I bought this camera as a christmas present for my daughter. she is taking a film class in college and needed this type of camera. It was a great camera when it was new and hopefully she will get many great photos from it still.
Summary: This camera is simply amazing! It focuses so quickly! It's also very light, which makes it easy to carry around with you. Can be easily taken apart to fit anywhere, but is sturdy and doesn't fall apart randomly. The manual controls are easily in reach, so you can change the settings easily. The instruction manual is simple and easy to understand, too. And the pictures are just... WOW. I can't believe the pictures it takes, they're all beautiful!
A good, basic, and compact entry level SLR as you could find. Buy it

Summary: It's the late 1990's,rather late in the day for film cameras, as we now know, but still time enough for Canon to wring another design out of the bargain basement Rebel series SLR autofocusing cameras. For years the Canon Rebel cameras were a)plastic, and b)low priced entry level cameras which resembled their bigger brothers. This changed with the T series, which had a body style notably different from the ELAN series and the A2.
Summary: The item was discribed as new and didnt list any flaws, but there was a broken rubber viewfinder piece and there is visible dirt when you look through the viewfinder. Otherwise the camera works great and these flaws do not effect the quality of the photos.
