"Lenses are everything."

My family pictures will be great from now on. Love the camera and accessories that came with this kit. Great Leica DSLR Camera package my kids love it! But I'd buy from Leica again, so they've got that going for them. This, in my opinion is a great camera to start learning on.

"Love this camera."

But that's what this entry level camera is all about. It sucks up way more battery life than the D7100/D7200. All other cameras in this category are much more expensive. I have always gotten great results with my Canon . But, others have covered its capabilities far better than I can.
