Great deal and customer service, worth the price!
on July 14, 2014
Truly received a great package deal with this offer, the camera arrived a day earlier than scheduled for delivery, and nothing was damaged when the original package was opened. The T5 is a solidly built camera and most of the included kit items were of fairly high quality.
One thing to note: Most of the smaller products besides the two Canon lenses are made by Vivitar, including the two UV filters, the add-on telephoto extension lens and the wide-angle lens, SD card, and the tripod too (which was kind of cheap in my opinion, but I expected it to be very lightweight). In addition, the camera bag was made by Vivitar, and frankly it was not nearly as protective as I thought. I noticed it was not the same as in the picture online so I contacted the seller after I realized this (pictured in the preview is the VidPro camera bag, which I also own and is much more durable in comparison to Vivitar's included bag). The seller promptly replied with the status that they were shipping out a new bag to me for free.
If not for such great customer service support, I would rate this a 4/5 star due to the flimsy quality of the tripod and camera bag, but due to such an excellent experience with their quick responses and support, I am happy I chose this package over others.
If you are looking for a package deal with a nice tripod, I would look for a package with a better-known tripod brand. But, if you just wanted the kit for its included extra battery, 75-300mm lens, and memory card, and accessories this package in itself will save you money instead of buying these individually and is great for a beginner DSLR camera kit to get you started.
