Confirmed purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I've been taking photos for nearly 40 years but this is the first SLR I have owned. Shooting with this camera is a great experience - very direct, lots of control. Battery life is fastastic - took it away for a weeks holiday and didn't need to recharge. Camera focuses as you put your eye to the view finder - nice feature.
Bad points:
No depth of field preview. Kit lens a little soft - but still fantastic value.

Good points:
Value for money. Works well and does the job. Am really enjoying owning it and use it a lot. Easy to use. Quite light weight.
Bad points:
Haven't got any real problems with it. Faster FPS would have been ideal.

Casie, Clovelly, Devon Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The body of the camera really fits my hand comfortably and I can reach all of the nessesery functions quite easily. I love the multiple option display it really helps with getting to grabs with learning how to go 'manual' and take those fantastic photos again and again and again.
Bad points:
The RAW data transfer time could have been speeded up but that has been updated and seen to with the newer models that have come recently.

david, Swansea Experienced amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
very nice balanced camera with lots of features that one can progress to as ones knowledge increases.
Brilliant in auto mode and very flexible on manual.
Bad points:
The main bad point has been with the lens. It failed after fifteen months due to a fault with the auto focus mechanism. Examination on the internet shows this to be a very common problem so I could not recommend this make of camera to a friend. I expect a purchase of this magnitude to last longer than fifteen months.
