Pros:Easy to use menu and settings, good quality pictures, flexible lens, variety of settings.

Cons:Sometimes lags when used with flashm, does not have flexible LCD screen.

The Bottom Line: This is a perfect camera for those who are interested in photography and would like to explore it with SLR.


I had this camera for 4 years and it still works perfectly. It has some marks of usage, but in general it looks almost as new. Therefore I could say that it is a good quality product. I also bought an additional lens, and it is really easy to swap them if I have to. Which is very useful in certain situations. However, the 18-55mm lens is one of the most flexible lenses. It zooms around 3 times, but at the same time it is suitable for portrait or inside pictures as well. Picture quality is really nice if you learn how to set everything up. But if you do not have a lot of experience with all settings you could simply use auto or semi-auto setting. With these settings pictures turn out in a good quality if you have enough light. Otherwise it is best to learn how to use the variety of settings that give you way more options and space for creativity. Besides it is not difficult to use for first time users. It is a great camera for amateur photgraphers. And even if your needs got bigger, it is compatible with almost all professional lenses, therefore you would not need to get another camera.
