I have 2 of these cameras and they have treated me well. For this price, you cannot complain. I shoot magazine covers as well as film YouTube videos with mine!
Just about every, if not all, digital cameras nowadays has an auto mode for you to be able to point and shoot and take good pics without worrying.

I can only see that price WITHOUT a lens. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong?

Edit: nevermind. I see that it includes the 85mm lens. Sorry. Please delete.

Bhphoto has the same package plus the camera bag and SanDisk memory card for same price. Free shopping as well.

That's only camera body, no lens is included.

How frustrating. I just bought this last week without the free lens from amazon for $1500. Not that it's a lens I particularly want, but still... frustrating.

Wrong, dead Wrong. Check the bundle with the lenses. You need to pay attention a little more.

This is an incredible camera if you spend the time to learn how to use it properly. I paid a little bit more for the same exact deal and have zero regrets. It is a great stills and video camera.

If only they would make versions of these cameras with all of the video functions software disabled (to not incur those licensing fees / import taxes) and sell it alongside the video versions.

Owning two of these cameras, they are great. Unbelievable value for what you get especially if you shoot video. I just picked up the atomos ninja v to get 6k prores raw recording if I want it.

Biggest cons: autofocus in video and photo for fast moving subjects. Moire a little on photos with certain fabric patterns like suits.

Beyond that, compact size, body stabilization, vlog color for video, dual iso in vlog at 640/4000 iso, video features, battery life, and sd cards vs more expensive cfexpress.
