Summary: I have had this camera for about 5 years, Since the begining the images were a bit blurry and I had since stop taking pictures with it. I thought it was the user (me) but i realize that the autofocus does not perform well, I read this happened to many users. Seriosly considering changing to Nikon
Summary: I do want to say that Newegg has always had stellar customer service when I buy their products. This one is all on Canon.
Pros: Great Sensor, Good color, and the RAW format imports to everything I've used so far. Using the menu is a snap. If you shoot manual you'll be impressed at how easy it is to adjust on the fly. Really large view screen. Great Camera for the price.
Cons: The camera died with an Error 99 after only a month and a half. I had to ship it back to the manufacturer and they don't do RMA. So I'll be missing my camera when I really need it. For something this expensive you'd think Canon would have better customer service. They are going to fix it under wa...
Loved until it stopped working and then it got worse!

Summary: I was excited to get my first DSLR after years of using a 35mm SLR followed by a Canon Powershot S3 IS, a good camera but limited. When I received it, I immediately started using it and was extremely happy with the ease of use,many functions, and the resolution.
Summary: First, I LOVE this camera when its working. I bought one from amazon, and within 6 days, it gave me an ERR 99 message. Nothing I tried fixed the camera, so I exchanged it. Amazon was great about getting me a replacement pronto.
Summary: I really wanted to like this item. I had a Canon point and shoot from 2005, and got the Rebel XTi (5 stars after 10,000+ snaps of flawless performance) in December 2006. Over the next year and a half, I got several Canon lenses including 2 L lenses.
Summary: Did not like the huge picture view on rear, who really uses live view on dslr anyhow.
Pros: Fast, more quiet when mirror flips, auto sensor cleaning
Cons: mines had some dust or dirt particle either on sensor or the mirror which I couldnt remove, really annonying, will have to take it to a shop now to have it removed. Didnt bother to send it back to newegg, too much problem involved with s/h and just dont have the time. Also, mines didnt have the m...

Summary: It is a good camera overall, though a bit heavy. Overall I was satisfied but 7 months after I purchased it stopped working. Whenever I pressed the shutter button: the shutter opened but stayed open for very long, no image was recorded and the error 99 code came on "shooting is not possible, turn the...
