Thoughts and recommendation.

I got this camera borrowed from my friend for a few days for testing.

I really like this camera, it’s very easy to use and what I like the most is this flip screen.

The picture quality is good and High ISO on this camera.

All I can say, I really like this Camera.

I notice that this camera can do a good job with other and better lenses than the kit lens that comes with this camera.
