This is my first DSLR and I have to say I'm very impressed with it. I used it for a week while on holiday in Scotland and I found it quite easy to get to grips with. Definitely a great camera for anyone serious about good photography.

David, Belfast Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use straight out of the box, the Auto Point and shoot is really easy, while you figure out how the other features work. Relatively light weight for a SLR and both lenses are excellent. This is the best spec'd camera for the money out there at the moment in my view
Bad points:
Some of the controls are a bit fiddly in Manual mode, especially having to toggle between shutter speed and aperture in Manual mode. I have compared this with a NIKON D80 and these features are significantly easier to use on it.
