Quite entertaining. i like the miniature movie mode.

To be honest I think this is the cleverest move I've seen from a DSLR brand in last 6 or 12 months.

I think the 100D will be very tempting fro a Canon user that wants a camera for the weekends or vacations but don't want to take their more "serous camera in to that situations.

This will also be temting for someone in the high end compact cameras or more specialized cameras like the Fuji X100 or similars, to a much friendly price.

...or someone who wants a smaller, lighter DSLR to take on their bicycle.

The U.S. Model is going to be named the Rebel SL1. Here's DPReview's first look.

The 700D is going to be the Rebel T5i in the U.S.

the 100D looks like a nice little weekend camera.

i held off on possibly getting a EOS M because the AF was painfully slow and the adapter for my lnses. throw a nifty 50 or the 40 pancake on and its perfect!

Adorama is taking preorders for the SL1 for $650. That's a touch more than I paid for my 50D (To be fair, my 50D was a really good deal through Canon's loyalty program).

If I want a smaller DSLR for cycling, I will probably look at used 3-5 year old Rebels instead.

I think that both of these cameras are very interesting. The SL1 is definitely attractive for those wanting a small camera but SLR behavior. The big question will be what is the image quality like? This is supposedly a new 18Mpx sensor, so I'd expect Canon to up the ante on high-ISO performace with this one. I would not expect 6D performance given the much higher pixel density, but I would expect very good performance nonetheless. If the noise characteristics are anything like the 6D (very fine-grained, no detectable banding, almost no blotchy color) it will be a winner for indoor low-light photography.

high ISO performance is important, but if its that important you know where to go. i'm thinking the folk getting this camera will be ok with any level of ISO performance over what they are used to or wont use it indoors all that much.

I'd be thrilled if this camera were on par with the current canon APS-C sensors.

just now looking at the t5i (700d) specs and i im wondering Canon even bothered. They pretty much improved nothing over the t4i, it has a 360 dial, new finish and a 3-10x digital zoom.

really that's it?

I think that, with respect to the T5i, we need to see where the image quality is. Surely, it is an evolutionary change, not a revolutionary one. But to talk about whether it is "worth it" for Canon to renew the model is, IMO premature. The new sensor and electronics hint at the possibility of valuable improvement.
I also think that the high-ISO (e.g. low-light) performance is *very* important to the casual shooter, even if they don't realize just how important. The 6D, for instance, really makes indoor, flashless photography a workable thing, especially with f/4 glass. I have been blown away with the low-light performance of the 6D, and if this is even close to that, the potential for casual indoor photography is big.

Go small or go home, I say. I'm still drooling over this full-frame sensor in a compact body.

Sony RX1
