Summary: This camera kit is everything it was advertised to be. After extensive research this kit had all we were looking for with minimal chachkies. We chose this camera because of the 55mm - 250mm IS (Image Stabilization) lens instead of the standard 70mm - 300mm lens.
Excerpt: I have loved taking photos for the past 50+ years. Generally candids of family events... this lens gives me the freedom and stealth to reach out and capture relaxed and uninhibited poses. I love it.
Summary: Christmas present. All products appear well made and feel heavy duty. Canon lens did not come with a warrenty card but serial number on lens was accepted by Canon online. Wife was vary happy with her present.
Summary: The product is exactly as described in the post. The zoom lens work great for still pictures. I noticed that the lens does have trouble staying focused while doing video compared to the standard lens. The price of this kit is an excellent value.
