Summary: Even after reading the other reviews, I still purchased the camera with the kit and couldn't be happier. Sure, the quality of the rest of the pieces isn't the best but this kit is perfect for a beginner photographer.
Summary: This camera had everything I wanted and more for a great price. Everything was new, well packaged and had no flaws whatsoever. I've had a lot of fun learning to use this camera and all the accessories that come with it. I highly recommend this!
Summary: I am so happy with this purchase! The camera is fantastic and the kit itself is such a great deal. I have not had a chance to use the extra lenses included (macro, wide angle, telephoto) or the external flash.
Summary: Bought this to replace my 26 year old EOS 650 35mm SLR. It still works, but wanted new tech. This camera has pretty much all the features a person could ever need, short of professional level phtography. This is a very nice camera for the money.
