I'm the photographer who returned a Canon Luxury lens because of a minimal amount of chromatic aberration. Perhaps if I owned the EOS Rebel T5i at that time I would have kept it. Among the settings there is chromatic aberration correction. I took my Canon 18-200 mm lens off my Canon 60 D and a funny thing happened. It got better.
I purchased the Rebel and 18-135mm lens with modest expectations and as a backup camera for a road trip out West. I used it exclusively and had the 60 D as a backup. The camera has exceeded my expectations on every level.
I'm getting terrific photos and the camera is as easy or difficult to use as I want it to be. Long exposures in slot canyons in Page, AZ with a tripod were rich and detailed. Grab shots from the car or at scenic areas are easy on P or other settings.
I can use some of my "old" lenses on this camera and they work better than ever. It's a game changer. My friend using the 5D Mark II hopes some of the technology trickles up in Canons new high end cameras.

Two times is too much

I buy this camera kit as a gift to my daughter , she is starting doing videos and is using my Pro camera , so , is mandatory to find a camera for her. Sadly, after a few minutes of use in video mode , the camera and the lens start doing strange things, like stop focusing in auto or manual , camera still on , even when the camera is off, freeze , giving errors in the back screen asking to put the lens back. So, I have to take the battery out to reset the camera, but in a few minutes start doing same thing, so , I returned first kit at the same time I order the second kit by the next day ( to make sure I don't receive same bad camera back ) , still the same problems .Two different kits with the same problems!!I hope this is an isolated problem in some kits.

      Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

      I had been using the Canon G11 with great success, but it was time to move up in my gear. I set my sights on the Rebel or one step higher. This was a costly step up, but it was something I saved for and I settled for the Rebel T5i.
      Although the G11 can shoot great photos and video, it is pretty flat. I wanted better photos and video with HD and this camera had it all. The learning curve is a bit higher, but the results are worth it.
      Each time I take a photo is a joy. So very happy with this product.

          Canon T5i is my first DSLR and I am very happy with it. The 18-135mm lens that came along with it is also good.

          Still exploring the options and learning to use a DSLR.

              Replaced my 7 years old Rebel XTI. New camera is amazing, so many new features. ISO capabilities are great. Didn't try the video yet as I'm mostly using camera for still photos. Lens is very convenient, everyday use without the need to switch it. Great for traveling.

                    Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

                    I compared the 70D and T5i before I purchased this item. While the T5i has fewer focus points and other difference compared to the 70D I found the number of focus points sufficient to meet my needs. This camera met all of my needs and is a fantastic D-SLR body. I also purchased the Canon BG-E8 battery/vertical grip which makes it easier to handle with long lens. I would highly recommend the Canon T5i. I have shot with film and digital camera bodies and Canon has created a great body that performs very well at a reasonable cost.

                    The buttons are laid out well and the ones you use the most like ISO are in a great spot to get to quickly.

                    The flip out screen is very handy and allows for better shots when you can't look thru the viewfinder.

                        Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

                        In love with the auto focusing and multiple modes. Easy flash enabling/disabling, scene detection, multiple face detection and touch screen pulled me in. The 18-135mm lens comes with a built in Stabilizer which I find incredibly useful. Happy with this purchase.

                        The Lens is amazing and has less bugs than the previous version.

                        I was heavily into photography many years ago and realized that if I wanted to be good at it I needed to spend more time and money.

                        When I bought the T5i I simply took it out of the box, charged the battery and started to take really good images, without even reading the manual.

                        Purchased the Canon T5I a little over 2 weeks ago. Got it here just it time for spring break. Zoo, Legoland, and Disney World Trip memories have all been taken with this. Within the first 5 minutes my wife fell in love. For a novice user the touch screen display is a wonderful feature. The texture and clarity of the photos are outstanding. Great size for family vacations even with battery grip, extra lenses, and extra batteries it was still light enough to sling around for 12 to 14 hours. Would definitely recommend it.

                          Big leap forward from a sophisticated point & shoot camera. Moderate price and tons of features. Great support from Canon. Helps you become a real photographer.

                            Comments about Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens:

                            As a previous owner of the EOS Elan (film camera), this was my first digital DSLR, and to be honest, I was very wary about purchasing a "crop-frame" camera, but couldn't afford the 5DMarkIII (full-frame). After some extensive research, I decided on the Rebel T5i, and I have been extremely pleased. The camera is set up very nice and with so many features! I am still going through the manual to ensure I understand everything. The pictures turn out great. The EF-S lens is superb (and got bundle price for my extra zoom lens), and all my EF lenses work with this camera. Body feels very nice. I can't say anything bad about this camera. I've been able to start taking great pictures again, and to be able to see them on the beautiful LCD is awesome. The HD video on this camera is fantastic as well. This represented a big investment for me, and I am 100% satisfied.
