Pros: This is a terrific package. I'd been wanting to upgrade from my point and shoot camera for some time and a planned trip overseas was the impetus to move me forward. I particularly was interested in Canon as I find them reliable and easy to use. This package really does have everything and I love the photos I am getting with the camera. The zoom lens was great to have for long distance shots, and although it is heavy, it's well worth the effort. The review screen is large enough to get a good idea of your shots and it also displays needed information about settings, battery life, amount of pictures taken, etc. Having the lenses, filters, two SD cards, tripods, bag, etc. all in one package is fantastic for those who are upgrading. There is no need to hunt for separate components and try to figure out which ones are needed. I've recommended this package to several friends. The box arrived quickly, everything was in good shape and I am exceptionally pleased with this purchase. The five star rating is well deserved despite the one caveat below in the cons section.
Cons: SD card reader. I used the usb cord to upload photographs to my computer until just this past week. My 32gb SD card has over 2000 photos on it, so this took a while and I decided to try the card reader that came with the package to be able to download faster. The card reader made the 32gb SD Card unusable and unreadable. I lost all of my photos stored on it (fortunately, most of them were already downloaded to my hard drive, but about 200 recent ones were lost) and I am unable to use the card in my camera. I googled the card reader and contacted the company after I read others reviews of it ~ apparently this is a common problem. I have not heard from them and I'm now out a 32gb SD card which was only about 1/2 full, as well as the loss of photos.
Other Thoughts: I am pleased with the contents of this package and I'm glad I bought it. I would like to purchase a wide angle lens as that seems to be the one thing missing after about six months of use. It's a great deal and I hope you continue to offer it, albeit with a different card reader!READ FULL REVIEW
