NEX-7 with kit7/24/2012
The wide-angle lens and telephoto lens included in this kit actually made my pictures look worse but I really didn't expect anything from them that great. The camera bag is a little small but it works. I'll likely buy a different bag. The tripod is ok for a travel tripod that will fit in a backpack and has the quick release on it. I would have rather had a 3rd party camera remote instead of the extra lenses it came with. Sony should really update the firmware for better bracketing.
It wass agood buy
The camera has taken great pictures so far; impressed with the exposure and lack of shadows. It is a little complex, but that just means more features that I need take the time to learn about. I would suggest a larger camera bag to accommodate the accessories.
