Pros: Just great quality pictures, easy to use
Cons: There's a learning curve, but that's any dslr camera
I purchased this camera on sale after black Friday after returning a faily expensive point and shoot camera. I was not happy with the pictures I was getting, blurry, always needed a flash and the flash looked terrible etc. I was very happy I returned it and spent alittle more on this camera. I still use the kit lens that came with it and am more than pleased. After reading through the manual I want out and shot some photos and it's just amazing how high quality they are. Even when I am just holding the camera up with no tripod I get very sharp photos with bright vivid color. If I'm not sitting perfectly still the vibration reuction on the lens seems to do a great job. The flash works very well and the camera uses it very well, none of my photos taken with a flash are overly bright or anything like that, the pictures come out well lit and nice. I have taken pictures of my animals running around and it gets great action shots of them, with very good detail.
