This an excellent camera with a very complete kit. While some of the included items are of limited utility, the extra lenses and filters are very good and saved a considerable amount as I would have ended up buying them separately. The gadget bag is really nice quality also. I have had the camera for a little over a month and am still discovering many of its features, but I am very impressed with the results. While others have complained that it is too light, I find this to be a benefit. It weighs considerably less than my old SLR camera's body without lens attached and yet it still feels solid.
First, the camera is excellent and I recommend it hands down. Some of the other items are also fantastic and provide a decent set up off the bat. I really enjoy the extra batteries, additional grip, additional lens, case, tripods (you get two), and Class 10 memory card. The other things (filters, macro/telephoto lens, cleaner kit, memory card reader) are a bit of fluff. I installed the extra grip and plan on never taking it off. It allows for better flexibility in shooting portrait or landscape. It also has a wireless remote which allows you to take those family portrait "selfies" without having to run into the frame within 10 seconds.
I love this camera. I had a Rebel back when Andre Agassi was promoting them...geez I am old! I had been waiting for the right time to buy another and this was it. The camera takes incredible shots and is pretty easy to use right out of the box. Not all the gear included is made by Canon, but it interfaces perfectly. The only problem is the camera bag is too small to fit all the items you get with this package.
Well worth the price for this great package. Camera works well and all the pieces that come with it are great. Only issue is the camera bag is small and only has one divider for all the stuff so I had to order a large bag but that is fine by me. Also, the cleaning solution for the camera was frozen (I live in Upstate NY) and then cracked so it was leaking in the box but did not ruin or get on any camera equipment.
Camera, lenses, grip, batteries, filters, charger, SD Card are all great for a beginner. The tripod is the biggest piece of trash I have ever seen. The bag is also pretty bad. The grip came with an IR remote which was a pleasant surprise.
