Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent features for the price. The equivalent specifications in Nikon or Canon would cost more. Camera body image stabilization is a definite bonus enabling price savings when buying lenses. Extremely fast live view, is also a definite plus.
The kit lens with this camera are also extremely good, which is not always the case with other brands.
Bad points:
None that I have discovered so far. The battery compartment door could have been a bit sturdier, hence the rating of 9.

Katie, Loughborough Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Images are really clear and there are lots of different settings for different scenes/effects. The camera is really light to carry and small enough to take to locations to shoot without weighing you down or needing a massive bag to put it in. The shutter speed is brilliant for action shots.
Bad points:
Some of the little images on the buttons for each setting arent very clear so it takes a while to work out what each one does.

Clive, Pontypridd Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Having upgraded from a Panasonic Lumix compact to this my first DSLR I found it amazing, easy to use and picture quality quite outstanding. I have since bought a 200 and 300mm lens and the quality remains. I have taken over 10,000 photos with the camera and use it often. Still learning to tweak my shots but the camera is excellent.
Bad points:
I really cannot think of any bad points however I'm sure that there will be a few the longer I have and use it.

Gary, Guildford Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent choice as a first digital SLR - controls are easy to find and operate. I really appreciate the swivel screen when using the live view option. Autofocus is fast and reliable. Feels very solid but is easy to handle. If you have the time it's well worth checking out what this camera will do - I've hardly begun yet. Images are excellent, even when blown up.
Bad points:
Shutter can be a little noisy in a quiet environment, otherwise none that I've come across yet.
