Excerpt: This camera it's good to start in the world of photography. It's film good too. Easy to use. You can take a lots of amazing photos. I think is a good camera but de lent 18-55mm (included in the kit) it's a little bit uncomfortable to make near and long distance photos.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Good For Amateurs, Lag / Shutter Delay, Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light
This does a great job of that AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT ...

Summary: I mostly wanted a camera that could snap photos continuously, unlike my old camera, which was re-acting more and more slowly. This does a great job of that AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT USING THE FLASH OR LIVE VIEW.
Summary: the camera was not made in japan but tiwan. the tipod was worthless and the bag flimsey. it was if these latter two items were placed in the package to get rid of them. every thing else was good. it did not come in the one day shipment as i ordered.
Cons: I wish it would let me put the date and time on the pictures when they are taken. I would not have bought that bag because it doesn't have different compartments or close very securely like velcro would.
Good camera WISH I can say the same for 70-300 mm lens

Summary: Bought it just before my trip to Florida. Very happy with the camera however not so happy with the 70-300 mm lens I received with it. Go for 55-250 mm lens instead it's better than the 70-300 mm lens for many reasons. For starters it has IS which makes a whole lot difference.
Summary: Notice that the zoom lens in this bundle is NOT an image stabilizing lens. If you are okay with that, then you may like the bundle. I returned for another seller that provided an image stabilizing zoom lens.
