Advantages: Build Quality, Picture Quality, price (for a DSLR)
Disadvantages: struggles in more advance situations, a better lens helps improve the camera
I got the Camera around 2 years back and haven't looked back since! at around £600 it came with a memory card, Camera bag, extra Zoom lens etc. I brought this simply to take pictures of family and my 2 son's.
The Build of the camera is probably the best feature of this camera. The camera is fairly weighty especially compared to rival camera's but to me this was a selling point as i liked the weighty real feel to it.
The ease of use was also a great feature the auto setting was more than adequate in most settings light and dark. The only time the auto really struggled was with fast moving object's or people. The images normally would come out sharp and full of deep colour.
I did find the extra lens i got was actually better than the standard one that you got with the camera however. This is a common thing to find with DSLR however as each lens works to its own strengths.
For the price of the normal camera standard i would highly recommend bu i would also advise gettings and extra lens for the extra sharp photo's.
All in all the camera was great and if you are new to DSLR or a photographer you will not be disappointed.
Summary: well worth the price great entry level DSLR
