I have had mine for about less than 2 months and its great. Its my 1st dslr and the 1slr I have used in probably 15 to 20 years. The Auto mode wotks great then P, A, AND S modes are a bit more customizeable. The scene modes allow you to adapt to changing conditions as you develop un understanding of whats going on.
I bought mine as a factory refurb and have no regrets.
It does feel a little "plasticky ?" compared to what I remember from my old slrs but thats all and im sure typical of todays products.
Read the manual. You can download one before ever getting the camera.
