Good camera,feels solid,compact and easy to use and carry around. It would be better to buy only the body and invest on a good lens but if this is your first camera go with the kit lens. Even kit lens would produce good quality image.
Had done a lot of research on which cam to buy and finally stopped at this beast. It has environment sealing and the best in class auto focus system. No camera is perfect so choose one which is better at most of the cases.
