Pros:Long batteries life, two lens included, good price quality ratio, two memory slots.

Cons:Flash not very powerful, high price for additional lens and flash

The Bottom Line: It's a good buy for the price. Because it's include two basic lens, good battery life, two memory cards slots.


I just love this camera. With the two lens included in the package they cover the basic need in photography. You get a very good quality of the pictures taken. Not to heavy. Very long battery life (more than 200 pictures using the flash per charge). You get two different memory cards to use CF and XD. Great choice of preset settings for the novice and you can go all the way by setting every thing yourself for the professional in you. You can add all kind of filter to the lens so you can do all kind of special effect. You can easly find replacement batteries and other accessory for this camera. In hand you have the feeling of holding a camera of good quality. It's a breeze to interchange the lens. The bust off option is very useful because it's not a easy job of cleaning the interior (mirror, etc.).

One of the cons of this camera is that the flash is not very powerful and with longer lens they get in the way of the flash. When you want to buy more lens for this camera they are very expensive but it's the same for classic camera. A additional flash would be a nice add on.

If I had to buy another SLR I would buy this one again.
