Summary: I haven't had time to use it much, but I like it so far. The Live View is handy for the way I use it, but it drains the battery very quickly. Other than that - it's a Nikon, what's not to like! It has a lot more features than I will ever use. Camera manufacturers seem to think that their customers want more and more unusual features. I just want a camera that is easy to use, solidly built, and makes extremely sharp images.

Summary: I really loved the color red of the camera and the lenses. I'm very new to DSLRs so I'm not sure how to compare this with others but after lots of research between this camera and the Canon Rebel T5i I decided to go with this one. I'm not sure yet how to operate the video so that it focuses better and doesnt get blurry but that would be my only complaint. The Rebel had a touch screen which I've heard is easier to use when focusing on video recording...
Summary: I bought this bundle after a long research and it is as displayed. the only reason I didn't gave it a five star is that it doesn't contain the 18-55 lens hood, but I think the oringinal nikkor lens has the hood.
Summary: Needed a full-featured camera that wouldn't break the bank, and the the ebay'r I purchased from had configured an expanded kit with this camera/lens as its base. I'm very happy to find features I wasn't even expecting, and Nikon's design of a complex, good-"feeling" camera is very user friendly. I'm looking forward to becoming intuitive about using it anow thousands of photos/videos.
Excerpt: This has Been an amazing camera. I made an entire movie on it, and it blew me away with it's video quality. I used it in -10 to 110 degrees fahrenheit and it stood up to the extremes well. The picture quality is stellar. An abundance of detail and great color depth in every picture. The performance in low light is fantastic! Compared to other cameras in it's price range it is one of my favorite cameras and quite possibly the best.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
