Great Budget Camera but lenses and accessories expensive, 11 Sept. 2010
Don't get me wrong i LOVE this camera, but i'm 16 and i have to pay for it all myself so I save and research untill i find the best i can do with the money i have and this was it and it's great, quality is great, build and feel is wonderful but you outgrow the lens really fast and the next one up isn't pricey in comaprison but if you just bought the camera say three months before then it's still alot so i saved up again and then i got it (GREAT lens BTW) then you need a camera bag. So beware.
The camera itself is great, i love the way the buttons are set out, the camera has a wonderful grip and the 3" LCD screen is lovely. I've never really had a problem with it technology wise. Definitely get a warranty becaise it is so much of a relief to know that if you drop it, it will get replaced! The genereal look of it is very nice, i've noticed that the body is rather smaller than most but that's just me being fussy, nice and light unless of course you have a great big lens on it. Obviously if you can afford a external flash get one but the built in flash is nice and high, quite powerful which could be a downfall because you can't really diffuse it.
The Kit lens is a great starter lens, nice and sharp but very fustrating, you either cna't get far enough back or zoomed in and you will grow out of it quickly! The camera however you won't, had it almost a year and still learning so much!
