Summary: For this being my first DSLR camera, I loved it. I still use it from time to time but have upgraded. If you are looking for a starter DSLR, then this is the way to go. Very easy to use and takes wonderful pictures. If you like doing nighttime portraits however, there is a lot of noise with this camera, and cannot focus right. Be wary of that night time portrait setting, because it may not work all the time.
Good Camera. Product in good conditions as described, good seller

Summary: I bought this camera as a gift for my wife. We are not photographer professionals but we would like to start taking more quality pictures, and this camera is a good middle solution for us that are not professionals. It was a used camera as advertised and it was in real good conditions and it is still working after one year.
Summary: I AM TOTALLY AMAZED WITH THIS CAMERA. UPON RECEIVING THIS CAMERA I CHARGED THE BATTERY, INSTALLED A MEMORY CARD AND TOOK IT TO MY DAUGHTER'S BABY SHOWER. THE PARTY ROOM WAS DIM-TO-DARK. DINNER WAS SERVED AND SMALL CHILDREN WERE CRAWLING AND RUNNING EVERYWHERE. I HAD NO CONFIDENCE IN MY ABILITY TO TAKE A DECENT PICTURE SO; I SET THE CAMERA TO AUTO AND STARTED TAKING PICTURES.
Summary: I am not going to break down this camera with the detail that has already been given. I have used other DSLRs and can say that this is a great camera for the money. The pictures are very crisp and clear especially if you use proper techniques (photography basics) Adjusting the settings took a little practice and a full battery to learn, but once you get the hang of it, it isn't overly complicated (read the manual before poking buttons).
Summary: This is my first DSLR and it certainly didn't disappoint. I got so spoiled by how light and compact it is even with lenses that when I use my brother's Canon Rebel XT series, I hated it because it is so bulky and heavy. The Olympus may not be the best for indoor shots, but in Outdoor, it really shines even for high-speed shots like Airshows or sporting events. I've had the two kit lenses and never really needed more (I would like to get a macro lens).
