I was looking to convert to digital for a while now, but hesitated because of price. When I found this particular kit, I was floored. Olympus was going to give me two lenses, an 8 mega-pixel, a huge LCD, a dust reduction sensor for under $700? I could not see this deal slip from my hands, so I bought it and couldn't be happier with my decision.

I absolutely love this camera. When I received it, it was nicely packaged. As I opened it I received a nice surprise (actually, I might have overlooked this feature in the kit), each of the lenses came with a hood for sun glare reduction; a huge bonus for me since I do a lot of outdoor photography. The size of the camera is perfect for my medium sized hands. It has a rubber grip which is a huge plus when handling the camera. Olympus included many automatic settings for pictures on the go. Included in these settings are children, macro, candle, and low/hey key. The manual is highly thought out, precise and easy to read. I suggest reading the first five sections before turning on the camera. These sections are extremely helpful and go a bit step by step in learning your camera. Both of the lenses are high quality and easy to attach to the body. You get a lens for close-up photography and one for distance, what more could you ask for starting out? The pop-up flash could be a little brighter, but brighter than most. Outdoor photos come out gorgeous. I took pictures at a zoo recently and the color and clarity can not be beat. A great camera to start digital photography with. Overall very happy with this product, its value and quality.
Amount Paid (US$): 679.00
