Great Camera, "Meh" Accessories.

Summary: I'll brake this down by the items in the package- The Camera and Kit Lens: These are the quality I expected from Cannon. Camera is great, shoots awesome pictures. Don't expect the camera to turn you into a pro though. The Zoom Lens: This is great, not sure what people are complaining about for the price. Focus is fine, pretty quick in good lighting - in poor lighting it struggles a little. The Tripod: This was the most disappointing out of the kit.
Summary: This is a great product. I bought it for a newspaper photographer I know and she is consistently making use of it. I see the photos every time I buy the newspaper. Right now other photographers are asking her where they can buy one. I works, and I know this because I also have the same model. The items in the bundle were of overall decent quality, although some of them are just downright cheap. But it is a good package, and you will not regret the purchase of the bundle.
Summary: Hard to argue with the pricing as the camera and lens bundle alone is what the big box stores charge. It's all the extras that make this package hard to beat. In a recent insert, this camera was featured at $749 with the lens package, if you wanted a bag and memory card there was an accessory bundle for $59 extra. So, doing some simple math that made that package $809 as opposed to the $759 for this one.
Summary: The camera works perfect and takes truly incredible pictures, and this bundle is awesome, with multiple batteries and chargers, and a great assortment of lenses and filters, and a very nice bag and table and floor tripods. Use is almost everyday!
Summary: The kit is not as advertised. Most accessories don't come from Focus but a cheap, made in China Opteka. I paid extra $100 to have all the accessories, but it's not worth it. Will go back to get the camera by itself, from another seller.
Summary: The camera was received with all of the miscellaneous items like it would if it was purchased new. The camera looks and operates as brand new and hopefully will function without any issues. I also purchased the two year extended warranty just in case there is an issue with the camera.
