5/ 5

Pros: I went for the recertified because I felt Newegg's return policy was better than the new one for less money. The camera appears new no marks of any kind and was complete with all accessories. The lens's also looked brand new. The camera functions very well with many many options for the hobbiest. The auto functions make it so my wife can easily pick it up and take great pictures. I have had no problems with "factory recertified and recommend it.

Cons: I didn't feel the camera was packaged very well, but there was no shipping damage so it was good enough.

Other Thoughts: Newegg did there usual excellent job and delivered exactly as promised

Good Camera

Pros: great value, wonderful easy to use interface. Very flexible settings. 40-150mm Lens is ery nice.

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: I would recomend getting the new Oly with the 14-45mm Lens rather that the 17.5-45. I think that it would be well worth the extra money

It's a good camera!

Pros: Good camera for the money! It's an open-box item but I didn't find anything wrong with it. The two lenses are amazing.

Cons: Problems focusing in low light. It's kind of a slow starter.

Very good

Pros: Great Picture Quality, Good lense quality. Manual and autofocus is usefull. Adjustable flash intensity is very handy for
photos of up close objects in low light

Cons: Wish it had some kind of anti-shake system.

Other Thoughts: I like recertified stuff. You know the factory tech has looked at it twice and probibly fixed the most common problem.
