Verdict: We bought this camera around Christmas time as a gift to ourselves.  We reviewed a lot of SLR cameras before we chose this camera.  We wanted something practical, reasonable, easy to use and didn't want more of a camera then we would use.

Pros: small and light, easy to use, good image quality, high ISO, price, dual card slot
Cons: noise at high ISO, complicated flash

Verdict: This is my first DSLR and I honestly got it b/c of the price point (Walmart had it for around $350 including 2 4G memory cards). I didn't know a whole lot about cameras or photography when I bought it but I have had it for maybe 6 or 8 months now and I am very pleased.
