This camera is often underestimated for its value. Ok, it is a beginners device, but it has everything a beginner needs. I had one in my hands and did some brief testing. Image quality is as usual on Canon-standards (i.e. very good), the cam is light-weighted and easy to use. Perfect for beginners, not to forget the possibility to use the whole EOS system.
