Summary: This is good for amateurs and just playing around. If you want a real SLR for professional use, this one will frustrate you! I would let my students and family members use this one, and they never complained about it being hard to use.
Summary: My first SLR. It came recommended by a professional, so I did little research and took the leap of faith. Left for Alaska for 2 weeks about a week after receiving it. We are blown away with the quality of shots taken by this camera. Easy to use. Made a really rank amateur like me look pretty good!
Summary: Very good camera for the price. I paid only $350 for the used camera with 2 lenses and a camera bag. I bought it for my trip to Japan and used it along with 32GB SD Sandisk Extreme card. I was shooting RAW+JPEG and was stunned by the quality of my pictures.
Summary: I have owned this camera for three years now and it has been great. As an amateur landscape photographer and a professional forensic photographer this camera has held up to the test. it is rugged enough I can take it out on my hiking trips and get great pictures of the landscapes around.
