This is not a review, but a comment on the shortcomings of investing in this Canon system.

Given the superb performance of the CMOS image sensor, particularly at high sensitivity settings, the lenses offered by Canon as 'kit' lenses are somewhat of a let-down and disappointment for the following reasons:

The camera body does not have image stabilisation. If you wish to have this facility each lens you buy has to have it built in. This makes the lenses inherently more expensive than similar ones without image stabilisation.

The 'kit' lenses (18-55 and 55-250) are not internal focus, therefore the filter thread rotates when you change focus, making the use of polarising filters difficult.

Canon do not supply lens hoods with their lenses and, unless you opt for cheap alternatives, are quite expensive to add on.

To get the best from the resolving capabilities of this excellent camera one really needs to go for the more up-market Canon lenses and they don't come cheap.

So beware, you may end up spending quite a lot of money getting this camera kitted out to your satisfaction.
