Good quality at high ISOs.
Guide Mode for beginners.
Continuous video autofocus.
Easy to use.

Kit lens could be better.
Perhaps 24 megapixels might be overkill for entry-level users.
No auto exposure bracketing or optical depth-of-field preview.
Complicated menu system.
Underused command dial.
No built-in AF motor so can't auto-focus with non AF-S lenses.
No live histogram.
Slight blue cast on LCD display in some lighting conditions.
Relatively high price.
