Body Only.

What does it mean when the ad states "body only?"

Like, is it the camera without extras? Or physically just a shell?

Sorry probably a dumb question

all you get is body with no lenses. so all you get is body by it self most of time with no extra. some come with extra but does not have lenses. some come with charger and battery's and memory cards

Alright, thanks for the clarification. I wanted to make sure it was just an empty shell of a camera. Which is probably a stupid thing to wonder... But I'm glad I asked.

most company's this time year have goodies packages with camera body only or with lenses with body. if this is new camera and do not have any lenses for camera body might be good idea to get camera with some good basic lens to start off with. then you can upgrade to more better lenses that will fit your needs. i was luck that 5 picked where great addition to two lens i have and with one i have i really do not need to use two start lens since other ones do better job. but if 18-55 was not just af only would be using more then make camera full auto to use in auto mode with no auto focus. i wish could auto focus in any of manual modes or full manual mode. you should also look into trying lens out at camera store or rent one to see fit need you want. since will not have to waste cash on lenses does not fit your needs.

Huh?

Just to be clear here; 'body only' means the camera is sold without a kit lens, so you do get a functioning camera out of the box. You just need to supply the lens.
