My son is a wrestler and I had another camera I had used for two years and was not getting the quality of pictures I wanted. I debated on spending the money for a new camera when I had one, but when I compared the old one to this one I felt I would get better quality photos due to this one is actually a better quality camera. I am very pleased with photos I get now, they are sharper and more clear. As for the cost of the camera I feel like it was a good value with all the accessories that came with it. Very pleased with my choice.
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.
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.
