A life long Canon camera user, I was having trouble holding the larger cameras and had gone to small digitals for a few years. The size of the T5i invited me to go back to an SLR. It is everything I expect in a Canon camera.However, I would have been happy to have been informed that there are no lens doublers for this lens, a MAJOR drawback for me. I may have to trade up!
The camera is a GREAT entry-level DSLR that takes stunning photos with minimal knowledge of photography. For more advanced users, the fully-manual functions are perfect for those on a budget. The additional two lenses (really just fancy filters) are worthless. The actual filters are decent, but you'll find quickly that you only really need the UV. Good size memory cards, although I wish I knew they weren't very fast - that's kind of a bummer. But really, all in all, this is a great kit for the aspiring photographer, or someone transitioning from film to digital.
