Still A Canon Man Through and Through
on July 17, 2014
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).
