Summary: Great deal, great package of items, buying this is far cheaper then buying the camera and extra 55-300mm lens. Overall you can't go wrong with this purchase as buying everything separately would far exceed the price this seller is asking.
Excerpt: I have a passion for photographing what I find in our garden/temple. Bugs, flowers, stones, our dog, trees and whatever moves in-front of my camera. Two years ago I was started on this passion when my wife bought me a low end superzoom. After 15,000 shots it was time to upgrade.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: My husband and I use it to record live music performances connected to a Zoom H5 recorder. The video quality is excellent. It is versatile and relatively easy to use. The swivel display is a plus.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Price, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Mic input, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Perfect choice when you want above entry level but don't have an endless budget

Summary: I searched many websites, reviews and stores to find the perfect camera for my wife for Christmas (can I still say Christmas?? lol). I wanted something good enough to where as she progressed in her photography it would still be a decent camera, but not something so complex and daunting she wouldn't...
