Title: 600D vs 100D
Post by: Hillsilly on March 21, 2013, 07:09:33 AM
I know I'm going to get asked this...

With the 600D $445 locally and the 650D $586, apart from the small size, what does an $800 100D offer? 

I'm also getting the impression the 700D isn't a dramatically improvement over the 650D and you wouldn't pay a large premium.  Am I missing something?

I might have asked too soon.  Real world pricing of the 100D isn't as bad as I expected.

I think this is a good response to the mirrorless competition.  It's not much bigger than the EOS-M and it retains full functionality of a Rebel including phase-detection AF.  Stick a EF 40mm pancake, and you have a small walk-around or street camera or use it as a backup to a larger camera.  It won't take up much space in the camera bag. 

I think this is true evolution of the Rebel line, not the T5i.  It retains the physical controls that we are used to and are more efficient than menus.  Canon is probably using this to gage how well the public will accept the smaller form factor for future Rebels.  Now the Rebel is positioned better to compete with future micro 4/3rds systems.  Why design another line of lenses (EF, EF-S, EF-M)?  Play to Canon's strength:  its breadth and depth of EF lenses.

Anyone have any idea how the SL1will stack up against the 5Dii / iii in low light? I'm a 5Dii owner and want to know if I can get decent high ISO out of it as a backup camera...

Probably about the same as how the 4Ti does now.

Probably the same as the T3i, T2i, 60D, 7D... all have basically the same sensor technology.

check the canon website..... the 650d is removed but they retain the older 600d......  I wonder why (sarcasm!!)

I'm intrigued by this little camera. Shooting in water and swimming with a small camera would be great. Put this in any manufacturers housing along with a 580 or 600 in a flash housing and thats the easiest thing to swim with ever.

I have the same opinion
