Summary: Only downfall to this order, my lens was scratched. I received this bundle Friday night, I've contacted focus camera but they were closed over the weekend, tomorrow is Monday so hopefully they will be able to exchange just the lens instead of the entire bundle that Amazon wants to do. This bundle deal is amazing! Great price and my package came early, just in time for Father's day. Crossing my fingers I don't have to send the entire thing back.
Summary: I loved the camera but was so pleased when I returned and purchased the 70D. I had spent so much time researching and thought the T5i was for me. So, look around.. take your time... and find what fits with you!!
Summary: I purchased this package. The camera is awesome and you get a lot of things. Not sure these are all items that are really needed. Be careful, because I did not get everything as pictured. The SD card holder is just a plastic holder that will not hold up. The camera bag is cheap and the zipper broke after 3 days and I have already replaced it with a canon bag that is awesome. The card reader was not the one pictured. The tripod is okay, but I will be upgrading it also.
difficult to use, cannot use aftermarket batteries

Summary: The camera takes amazing pictures - when it wants to. The settings are not very intuative and I find myself constantly having to read the manual to find out why it is refusing to take a picture. When in video mode the autofocus is nearly useless. This makes filming yourself darn near impossible because someone has to be "At the helm" constantly adjusting the autofocus which should be renamed to headache generator.
Summary: First shipment received 50% of items, after sending email to the seller, received second shipment but still missing 2 items. I thought that this deal was good cos it was showing only one piece was available but immediate next day they reduced $20 and 15 numbers are available. Next 10 days $150 reduced in another website. Felt horrible as I couldn't claim anything with Amazon as it was sold by focus camera.
Summary: I am new to this whole camera thing so i did as much research as possible and the bundles that are on sale at Amazon were the way to go. However you still get a bunch of stuff that you don't really need or can't use. for exam the two usb cables one is a general cable the other is this high speed gold hd cable. Second the bag is way to small for the stuff it comes will to pack in there.
Good camera, poor case - make sure you really need all the additional items. Consider buying them separately...

Summary: Items arrived on time... Very happy with the camera and lens, looks like a very good entry level camera. Agree that the case is a very poor one. Will have to buy a new one separately. I think it is much better to buy the camera and lens and then all the other you REALLY need separately as I am not sure I will use the other things (but had to pay for them and they are not with the best quality....).
