Summary: First of all, I think it's a grey market camera. There was no warranty card with this item. The tripod, 500mm lens, bags are literally joke. Tripod broke down after 3 days. The flash of the camera stopped working after 11 days.
Very disappointed for the camera I waited a week for

Summary: The camera package was misrepresented in my opinion. Accessories were really cheap starting with the tripod that was so light it wouldn't hole the camera with my telephoto lens. In addition to cheap accessories the camera box wasn't sealed.
I kept assuming it was me or possibly the lenses (all my three of my lenses are canon lenses recommended for this camera)

Summary: I bought this in December of 2013 but wanted to wait and spend some time with this before writing a review on it, pro or con. Back in the 80's I used to dabble in photography and darkroom work (mostly black & white darkroom) and it has been awhile since I shot manually/SLR.
Summary: When shooting through the viewfinder using the center point focusing square, the autofocusing system did not work at all. 9/10 shots were out of focus. I noticed this problem the moment I started shooting.
Excerpt: I have nothing much to say about this camera when image quality is so poor. Everything else just do not matter. I purchased it based on many reviews but I am selling it now. I do not need the fastest AF if I am not happy with both RAW and JPEG quality.

Cons: Shaky operation, Poor image quality, Poor build quality, noisy, Short battery life, Heavy/Bulky, fast af
