Good points:
Easy to use, with good on screen explantions for those new to DSLR's, good first time DSLR camera, all the standard features included, adition of LCD quick view also handy to go along with the view finder.
Bad points:
Takes a while to find a comfortable and easy grip on camera. Lack of video mode surprising for a company with such experience in the video recoring market although this really shouldnt be a problem.
