Pros: Battery life,color,very fast start up,
Cons:
plastic....very light and small.....focusing points are not accurate,not recommended to put a heavy lens on wide or telephoto. The body is fragile

I had this camera for about a week and got rid of it. I did a model shoot and a bike shoot. I found that the focusing was not dead on. If there is just a little breeze and your hand holding it you will get soft images. Its just a very small and light camera to take on trips maybe. For someone starting out it will teach you alot about DSLRs.

If it was me I would go with the magnesium alloy bodies like the 10D 20D 30D and 1 series pro bodies. The used cameras work just as well as the new and you save alot of money.

I was very dissappointed in this camera cause I bought it to use it as a backup. If your use to using a heavy bodied camera then this will clearly be a step down on what your use to using.

Pros: fast for the money
Cons:
AF motor can go out.....and its noisey..contrast is low

I purchased this lense from KEH and oddly enough since it was out of warranty I had them fix the autofocus motor. Since then its been a pretty good lens. I have gotten some pretty sharp images
