Canon EOS 70D Kit just as listed/Described - excellent price and great shipping - Outstanding seller! A++ - Thumbs up on the camera so far - I have a LOT to learn (Last camera was/is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi 400D, that I ALSO purchased from Amazon - I still have it, but the Rebel 400D doesn't have NEAR the features that the EOS 70D has)

I'd been researching a DSLR upgrade and have always owned Canon's (since my AE-1 used back in college!) but didn't just want to stay with the Canon just out of blind loyalty (would a Nikon be better?) so I had to do my research homework - surfing the usually trusted sites such as consumer reports, CNET, of course here at Amazon and various other camera and electronic related sites reading both Pro reviews AND customer to see exactly WHY it was recommended or hated.

With each site I went to - the 70D was always reviewed in the top 3 (on average) so my choice was made on the camera - and as for the kit, I kind of stumbled across that by accident and SUPER glad I did! for just a little over what I was prepared to pay for just the 70D and Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens, I got a package filled with booty!! At a price I could live with (and brag about).

Okay I'm not a camera expert, so take this with a grain of salt. The camera itself, obviously, is beyond awesome. I also bought the D70 book by David Busch, because I've always wanted to experiment with taking pictures, and we just moved to a country setting with lots of wildlife. (I recommend that book too). I love the ability to quickly setup the shot, push the + zoom on the camera to double the digital zoom to focus perfectly, then snap a picture. Sometimes focus is hard to achieve without the digital zoom feature.

The 2 main lenses, both zoom lenses (as I understand it), are really nice. I have been getting great pictures, especially at night which is when most of my shots have been. The camera/lenses pick up light well and focus well with plenty of adjustment to the f/stop and shutter speed.

I tried the telephoto 500mm lens with a moon shot from my room (open window, stable ground, no motion), and I wasn't too impressed. Now there are particles in the air which probably will make it impossible to get a super detailed shot. But I don't know, not sure if this telephoto lens is the best option out there. Again, just a humble first time user's experience, I could be doing something wrong. I'll post a picture of the moon nonetheless, I mean it did capture craters near the top which was cool, just seemed fuzzy overall.

The extra flash seems plastic and cheap, but honestly I haven't tried it yet. It's just a general feeling of cheapness. Same thing with the tripod, don't recommend the tripod at all. It's flimsy and cheap feeling. I use a Velo tripod instead, and the camera stays solid during long shutter times.

The widescreen lens is nice, does produce a nice wide view, but definitely has a vignette around the outside (maybe that's normal?). I think I had read that better lenses don't do that. The pictures still turn out great though with a little photoshop editing.

The only thing I wish this kit had was a small light to shine on the camera to configure settings at night. Just a small LED light or something would be cool. Other than that, it's a great starter kit (at least for this starter), and I think probably even past the starter point with some of the components being pretty nice.

The picture of the small moon was with the telephoto 500mm, one of the full moon was cropped in photoshop, the half moon was fully zoomed/cropped with the 300mm zoom lens, and the rest were using the wide angle lens. Only 1 of these pictures was taken during the day time, the rest around 9 to 10 pm.

I ordered this bundle on december 23 with standard shipping, it was supposed to arrived between december 30 and january 5 and I got it december 26 and with everything that the picture shows. I was so happy. There are so many great reviews about this camera everywhere that I wanted to focus this review on service. All the items that comes with the camera looks very good. I agree that you might want a better tripod but this is very light and does the work if you handle it with care. I've used Nikon for more than 20 years but trying the new canons made me switch. While I will use this camera for taking pictures, I bought this model for the quality of the video.

Love it, love it, love it! Lots of extras. The biggest lens is not impressive, and certainly invest in a nicer tripod.

I love the camera, I had to return the 500mm lens due to a defect. The seller replaced it but forgot to send the t-mount adapter that goes with it. Which mean I can't use it yet. Since it is a 12 dollars item, not a great loss (will call the seller anyway). I like the touch screen on the camera and the wifi capability. The two other lenses are great. You will definitely need a better flash and a better tripod. Make sure it is dedicated for the 70d

First of all, I think it's a grey market camera. There was no warranty card with this item. The tripod, 500mm lens, bags are literally joke. Tripod broke down after 3 days. The flash of the camera stopped working after 11 days. The seller didn't provide me the warranty card after asking more than 5 times. Don't buy from them.
