Terrible bundle. Just buy the camera and the lense

Dania Maciel, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: It is not worth the price. The zoom lense is manual, the telephoto and wide angle are not for this lense. You can see the lense edge when you take the pictures. The tripod is awful I cannot even use it, the legs are not of the same lenght!!!

Lens missing

Chris F., Newegg
20 August 2014
  • Summary: Newegg didn't have another kit in stock to replace this one with so I'm having to do a refund RMA and purchase this elsewhere. This took 2 chat sessions and 2 followup calls to support to newegg to iron out, plus a call and several updates with Nikon. Per newegg's recommendation I also contacted Nikon to see about a replacement lens, but they only replace accessories and not main components.
  • Pros: Arrived fairly quickly. American newegg phone support friendly and helpful.
  • Cons: Contained box and packing materials for, and documentation for lens - but the actual 18-140mm lens was missing. Online newegg Chinese chat support frustrating and error-prone.

Almost a Winner

Jake, B&H Photo
27 April 2014
  • Excerpt: What a wonderful little beginner camera...sort of. What a terribly bad kit lens. Strange green caste on virtually every image in RAW (and JPEG) format is less than good practice to correct in Lightroom. Body--With a very plastic feel the camera body is ergonomically better than I expected after a few days of use.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality

Not for me. Preferred an old Canon Rebel. Hard to use for a pro. Teaches bad habits to a noob.

  • Summary: I had to use this camera/lens for a shoot tonight as my Canon 6d is in for a warranty repair. I had to learn it all quickly as it was picked up only minutes before the shoot. I had never used this camera before and am not typically a Nikon user. So take what I say with a grain of salt. I'll be brief. It's plasticy and cheap feeling. The body feels like it would crack if dropped. The way the dials are laid out is more like a point and shoot than a true dslr.

Problem of compatibility with Sigma lenses!

Arnaud, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: This post is NOT a review, just an information that may be important for potential buyer: This camera won't be fully compatible with Sigma lenses (Nikon mount) due to a glitch in the firmware: Optical stabilizer and autofocus on Live View won't work. If, like me, you own several Sigma lenses that you used to use on a Nikon DSLR, you will have to send them to Sigma to update the firmware.

Made in for????

Krone1961, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: Die bestellte Ware ist qualitativ hervorragend; der Versand durch Amazon wie immer problemlos! Ich habe die Kamera erst gar nicht vollständig ausgepackt, als ich nur kyrillische und polnische Bedienungsanleitungen fand. Diese Kamera war wohl für den "Ostblock" produziert worden, was zunächst einmal kein Fehler ist, aber bei nicht einmal einer englischsprachigen Beschreibung und Garantieanforderung denke ich ist der Preis doch nicht so dolle Die Rücksendung und Gutschrift...

  • Excerpt: для видео лучше брать сони a65 и выше или панасоник gh3, но он дороже.
  • Pros: фото хорошее, видео так себе. слишком фокуссировка долгая.
  • Cons: для видео не годится. проще взять 3100 или 3300 и хороший объектив, снимать фотки.

Accessoires incomplets

somebody, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Je suis en colère après Nikon. L'appareil est livré sans pare soleil et rien pour fixer le bouchon cache objectif. Des économies de bout de chandelle... Inacceptable lorsqu'on sait que tout est prévu par la concurrence sur des appareils entrée de gamme 3 fois moins cher.... Pas de cable mini-hdmi et toujours livré avec un câble RCA audio/vidéo !!! Bienvenu dans le 21e siècle !!!!

Excellente qualité d'image mais des défauts d'ergonomie

Ubu, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: Bonjour, je me permets de déposer quelques commentaires sur cet appareil que j'ai utilisé une dizaine de jours. Un élément de contexte important pour comprendre mes impressions : je suis possesseur d'un Nikon D200 depuis 2007 et je cherche à le remplacer pour bénéficier des améliorations de capteur et de processeur des modèles plus récents. Autre chose : je n'ai qu'un usage amateur du boitier, exclusivement photo, je n'ai pas d'avis sur la vidéo.
