Generally good camera for beginer

a good camera in general: fast and precise AF, use convenient AA batteries, very cheap price with 2nd body, compact and light.

However, the build quality is a bit low: plastic with some parts easy to loose (shutter button, grip, battery cover).

My Kr got black corners on the display after 3 years of use, the viewfinder gets scratch and needs replacing, eyecup is made of cheap rubber which is broken after 2 years.

I drop it from 1,2 m and the battery cover got loose, the rubber part of the battery cover is broken.

Magically, it still works fine

I attach the black corners on display here with hope that someone may have a solution for it
