Summary: I decided to purchase the D5200 Bundle as a refurbished item. I was so very surprised when I opened the package after receiving it. The camera looked like a brand new camera. I checked the shot count and it didn't have a lot of usage. There isn't a sign of ware or mark on it. I have only had the camera for a week, but I have taken a few photos and the results were really great. I am very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: this bundle is a great value.i inquired to a couple people who have this equipment and they like it .need to get alot of hands on though.but like anything else more you read and use makes it easy.
Nice bundle - Excellent sensor in D5100, solid Sigma lens

Summary: The D5100 was my first DSLR camera, when I purchased a used D5100 body on ebay January 2013. I wasn't willing to buy the D5200 and it's 24 mp sensor, because the difference is only apparent in large prints. In summary, the D5100 has superior image quality and low-noise at high iso (upwards to 1,000 iso) low light situations, a good button layout, and a video mode that leaves the user wanting more.
Summary: wanted to upgrade from my iPhone and point-and-shoots to give me more creative imaging. this bundle serves me well. the quality of the images is amazing. one is flexible to just go automatic for times when one's in a rush to fire off a photo, but if you're trying to get creative and into real thoughtful "photography" skills the D5100 provides an excellent set of tools.
Great camera worth the money, awesome picture quality.

Summary: I have really enjoyed my camera and lens, its been like a dream come true for me to have such a hobby with a quality camera. I take pics of wildlife, birds especially and am happy about the performance of the fast camera and longer range lens. The only issue is with the lens which has became slow to focus and at times dont focus also it sounds like it needs a little oil on it cause it squeeks when it focuses. I dont know what to do about it.
Summary: I bought this for my wife for Christmas last year She has spent a good bit of time reading the manual and says she really likes it I thought the price was reasonable for the items received She uses it to take pictures of birds and would like to have a little longer lens
Summary: Having fun learning how to use my new camera. Love all of the options this camera offers as well as all of the accessories that came with the purchase. I am a beginner to intermediate photographer (depending on what I am photographing) so what this camera offers suits me well.
