I agree, I just want a good small DSLR with OVF.You won't get a pentaprism in a $600 dollar camera.
Everything from the SL1, but with
-minimum shutter speed
-weather sealing (come on, those silly rubber rings can't cost much)
-60FPS HD video
-3x lossless zoom for video like the 760D and 70D
-small screen on top like the 760D
basically, I want the 70D in SL1 size lol
And while the silly rubber rings don't cost much, the grooves they fit in do add costs.
Uh, both are wrong. The Pentax k50 has both weather sealing and a pentaprism, and you can find it for $250.
Both these things cost nothing to implement, I have tons of old cameras with pentaprism.
It's just Canon trying to protect their own higher-end camera, of which I'm frankly getting a bit tired.
Crop users are still stuck at 30 FPS HD video, meanwhile sony is releasing crop cameras with 4k video and 120FPS HD video with large EVF viewfinders.
I sure am holding off buying Canon lenses to see where this is going, I'm not going to buy any more Canon lenses until I know what Canon will do in the future. They are quickly falling behind in terms of video and specs.
The SL1 and 1200D hasn't been updated in years, and the 760D is extremely costly for what it is, very outdated specs, 30FPS video, pentamirror, no minimum shutter, no weather sealing, no custom white balance.
Like I said, the SL2 better feature 60FPS HD video or this will be my last canon, I'm not going to keep buying gear with super outdated specs.
