Review summary from DPReview
The Canon EOS 1100D is a solid entry-level performer, but doesn't offer anything out of the ordinary. The image quality is decent, it's easy to use and beginners will find their way around the user interface pretty quickly. However, competition in the entry-level market is fierce and it is worth having a closer look at other options as well.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
Capture the far-off action of fast-paced sports or zoom in for an intimate portrait with the Canon EF 75-300mm telephoto zoom lens. The optical system, construction, and exterior are the same as the EF 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 III USM’s. The difference is that it uses a DC motor instead of a USM to drive the AF. As with all Canon lens, this 75-300 model carries a one-year warranty.

My only recommendation would be to get the package with the 55-250mm tele lens that has IS ( image stabilization) on it. My 75-300mm that came with the package I ordered did not have image stabilization so much of the time I have to use my tripod for distance shots. The 18-55mm lens did come with "IS" so that was a plus, I only wish I would have really looked over what I was getting before making my decision. The cost difference is minimal. Now I am saving up to get a 55-250mm IS lens.
And think about getting an AC adaptor, this comes in handy when you don't want to run your batteries down.
But I will say, I adore the battery life, talk about long life. And the view finder, its outstanding on this camera. On my Sony HX100, it was awful. There are times when you need to use the VF vs the live view screen. Especially when you are in sunny condition, this VF on the Canon is tops.
I think for the beginner to the world of DSLR you cant go wrong. I know of some photographers who have this T3 body and have upgraded their lens to much nicer than the kit lens. They say the T3 body is perfect. I am still learning, but from what I have been doing, I love it. I have been shooting some close up shots of bugs, bees, lichen, moss and tiny 1/4" in diameter orange pinwheel mushrooms with the 18-55mm and getting some amazing shots. Loads of detail.
I am very pleased with this camera.
My first SLR was a completely manual Canon FTb, purchased from a friend when Jimmy Carter was president and we placed our images on film. If you were a strong amateur photographer, you might enjoy some feedback in a couple hours IF you processed your own black and white film. Otherwise, you waited, hoped for the best, and prepared for the fact of life that most of your prints would not be keepers...
Fast forward to the delight of digital photography in the early 21st century, when the first cameras in the hands of consumers set you back about as much as this model..for around 2 MB resolution. While the instant gratification --and endless opportunity to experiment with images on solid state media-- of digital photography was a great change, the loss of control (from a lack of through-the-lens (TTL) viewing, no ability to set aperture and shutter speed manually and the constraint of a fixed lens) was bound to frustrate former SLR shooters.
I've been doing SLR photography for over 30 years, digital photography for over 10 years. I added "D" to my SLR photography with two different Pentax cameras in the last 7 years. One had persistent issues with flash performance (even after two warranty repairs), and a more recent model simply stopped working after 17 months...only to revive when it arrived at the repair center (an event which cost $100 to find out about). So, Pentax was off my candidate list for replacements.Read more ›
The T3i Rebel is a very popular camera, with good reason, It does a lot--almost everything you'd need in a DSLR, including video. There are two newer models, a T4i (which had issues with the coating and was discontinued) and the T5i, which has a touchscreen, some added features and a stereo mic for the video.
The new rotating screen in the T3i and up--a very good feature. The main difference to the new T5i is that it is NOT a touchscreen. The new screen is also a lot larger and flips around. This makes video shooting a lot easier and it's much nicer to tuck it away when your camera is put in the bag.
You also get the the ability to control wireless flash.
The new Creative Filters are added after you take your picture and can add the effect of a toy (Lomo) camera, fisheye and grainy black and white. They are fun. I got some great effects with these.
The "A" setting (automatic) now is "A+" and has "Intelligent Scene Analysis" and figures out, based on what you are photographing, color balance and other tweaks.
The Video lets you do HD video shooting, including "Video Snapshot" (short clips 2, 4 or 8 second)
This is a nice lens package; the 18-55mm IS is a good standard lens. The 75-300mm is a decent telephoto (I got some great bird shots) but it isn't IS (internally stabilized) and it isn't USM either.
The included 75-300mm lens is not very fast and you will need a tripod to use it most of the time--no IS (internal stabilization.) I find it is not as sharp, even on a tripod as the shorter 55-250mm lens. Doing night photography, I could see some chromatic aberration at 300mm.
Bottom line: at the four-hundred something price point for 2 lenses and body, a real deal and heartily recommended for a first DSLR.
