    No. But a pro could easily get pro-quality results with it given the limitations of its smaller (than the normal pro 35mm) sensor. Also, it's intended for photo enthusiast use and isn't so robustly built as the 1D series. The 5D series is somewhat below that.

    The 18-135mm lens is not guaranteed to please for too long as it's bulkier than an 18-55mm mm kit lens and you'll discover that going out to 135mm isn't nearly enough for the kind of telephoto use most people will be hoping for. You've got 7x optical zoom there in the 18-135 but you really need 14 x to start getting distant wildlife. Besides, if you start with the 18-55mm kit lens you'll work out where you really want to go next like into: Very wide angle (10-22mm), Macro: 90mm or telephoto out to 300mm or more. But you must try to avoid lenses with large number f stop (5.6 or worse) at the telephoto end or you'll be forced to use High ISO - extra light sensitivity that makes for grainer photos - in order to keep a fast enough shutter speed to stop camera shake and subject motion blur.

    You have the option of getting an all-in-one lens to do this but it involves serious compromises in terms of image distortion and light gathering at the long end. Most people opt for a real telephoto lens either from the manufacturer or from Sigma or Tamron's ranges (in Canon fit). Canon's 55-250mm is an affordable option.

    The EOS 77D is an excellent DSLR. It is not in the professional category yet but lies in the Advanced categories. The more time you spend with it and the more you use, the better you will learn and the better the results will be.

    Nice piece of kit if you put in the time and effort to learn to use it properly.

    A glorified paperweight if you expect it to do all the work.
