5 out of 5 eggsBest budget dslr(okay dslt) available

Pros: Price, price, price. Electronic viewfinder is great for beginning photogs trying to learn settings. Image quality in low light at high ISO isn't noisy at all. Digital zoom which is rare on dslrs but adds value to the kit lens. Lightweight and still rugged. Fast focus and especially when recording video. All around nice camera and certainly competes with canon and nikon's entry level models.

Cons: Plastic lens mount. Lower res LCD. That's about it.

Other Thoughts: My first dslr was a canon t3 and this feels like a dramatic step up

5 out of 5 eggsPacks a punch!!!

Pros: Great camera, great video, lightweight, tons of features as seen in higher end alpha cameras. Crystal clear, high pixel quality. Professional.

Cons: Most of the camera seems to be made out of plastic, making it lightweight which is a pro, but shall i say, "cheap" feel, even though i am not calling this a cheap camera, whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone.
