Summary: The camera itself is fine - the problem is the 18-135mm lens that shipped with it. This was a "spare lens" for me in a range that I do not use frequently. I put it on once and it seemed to work so I packed away. I recently went to an event where I wanted this lens and noticed that the manual focus does not work. The focus ring is loose and does nothing - only the auto focus works which doesn't work for all needs.
Summary: I recently purchased the Canon T5i and when I hold the shutter button half way down to focus, the flash makes a buzzing sound and goes off. I read some reviews that T3i flash has the same issue. This is my second T5i. The first one did not have the flash buzzing sound issue but when I used automatic mode the flash did not always pop up in low light, sometimes it would pop up and sometimes it wouldn't. I returned it and got the second camera with the flash bussing sound.
Summary: Love the Canon Camera & Canon lenses, but got 2 telephoto, and zero wide angle. Tripod is poor, Bag OK, but cheap. Should have shopped for just the camera and lenses, bought the accessories elsewhere.
Summary: Well unfortunately I can only give this purchase a raring of 2. This was purchased for me as a Christmas gift and.I anxiously awaited getting it, when I opened it I immediately started testing out all the lenses....then I got to the 18-55 mm lens....however instead of the lens for the camera I got they sent an ef lens that is way to.small for the camera...how does this happen.in a bundle!?
Stop!!!! Do not buy if you don't have PhotoShop CS6

Summary: So, I was so excited to finally get a DSLR. I took the camera out to shoot and all went fine, the touch screen made things really quick and easy....Then I got home. I currently have Adobe PhotoShop CS5 and had problems viewing the photos I took. Apon searching the net I found out that the T5i will not work with any photoshop older than CS6. This is such bull S@%&!!! To clarify, I now have to buy a $1000 program to view my photos taken on a $800 camera. This is bull S&^$.
Do your research and don't bother with this kit, sub-par accessories, with a terrible 300mm lense

Summary: The accessories that come with this kit are a waste of time, the case is very flimsy and it feels like it will only last a year, the flash already broke, and it came with a 2gb card instead of an 8gb like the description stated. Lenses are okay, the 18-55mm is the winner here, but the 300mm lense isn't worth the investment. I wish I would've gotten the 250mm lense for telephoto zoom, the build quality is so much better.
