Good points:
Amazing camera. Image quality, easy of use. I've got use to it so quick. All settings are under Your fingers.
I had Sony A300 and it is like change from Ford Fiesta to Audi A8. On the begining I had some problems with AF but Jessops advisor and Canon representativ was show me that I need to play with different settings. Now 9 out of 10 shots is superb sharp. If You thinking to buy this camera - stop thinking - just buy it and Im sure that You will not regret it.

Good points:
Great Beginner Camera for people new to DSLR, the camera has a lot of point and shoot friendly features aswell as the advanced settings for those seeking more control over the outcome of their pictures too. Dont be put off by the outdated information about lack of lens availability you can get them with ease now 18-55 kit lens and 55-200 nikon lens is all you are ever likely to need for carrying round anyway. Buy it and Enjoy!
Bad points:
Slight extra cost on AF lenses but its nothing major as you will only likely buy one additional one anyway
