A quick shot with EOS M6 and 28mm macro.
I couldn't decipher the flower name, unfortunately.
Is there any app that can identify plants from a picture or its features?

It looks like the same old 9 point AF system, if what's viewable in the mirror from that front view is anything to go by

Seriously? What can you see from that particular front view? That mirror is all white out.

It sounds like you need to get your screen calibrated  :o

Here's a screen grab with the black levels and mid-tones adjusted to make the AF points stand out more

Holy balls -- they got a tilty-flippy on a tiny SL# body?!

Was that expected?  Presume that means DPAF is onboard as well.

- A

That is a surprise.  Vari-angle touch screen, smaller, lighter, and probably cheaper than the T7i.

it won't be cheaper.  the SL1 was originally a pretty pricy camera at 799 body + 18-55

Ok, in which case I'd opt for the T7i, which is already quite light weight, unless there's some other advantage of the SL2

Just size really.

Please if you can guide me on the advantages of T7i over SL2 pls. I am thinking of getting a crop camera and wondering which one.

Ergonomics. The T7i has a lot more buttons, which reduces the number of times you have to dive into the menu system to make a change.

Obviously it depends on how one want to use the camera, but if that is indeed true, I can see a number of people being disappointed. The latest Rebel's are packed with 40+ point systems now correct? And last generation Rebel's even have the 19 point system. Which speaking of, I never found the all cross type 19 pt system in the 70D lacking and would be a nice fit in this camera.

You pair the "ultimate smallest DSLR" with equally fitting/balancing lenses... aka primes.
aka pancakes ...

Touché.

When I still owned a Rebel, I had the EF-S 24mm pancake attached to that thing constantly. It was kind the camera I always had in trunk of my car.

I've now long since unloaded all of my EF-S glass but sometimes wonder if I should have held on to that 24mm, in case I ever scooped up an SL1 (or future SL) on the cheap.

Are you speaking from experience or just keyboard warrioring it at this point? Because once you throw in the 18-135 you have basically nullified the existence of this camera as a Rebel is hardly any bigger and is small compared to that large zoom lens. A few years ago I captured a nice long weekend in NYC with a T4i and an 18-135. It was a great kit. But I can assure you at no point did I ever feel that "only if" the camera was smaller "I'd be good".

A bit of a rhetorical question, but I have to ask how often some of you shoot what you preach. If the point of the SL1/SL2 is ultimate small form factor then attaching a large zoom lens has completely defeated that purpose. You pair the "ultimate smallest DSLR" with equally fitting/balancing lenses... aka primes.

Given the aggression of your post, calling me the keyboard warrior is funny.

I used my SL1 a ton with my 18-135 STM.  The package is still smaller and lighter than that lens with an 80D or 7D2.  Maybe you don't have a use for the combo, but I can almost guarantee that most SL1s were, and most SL2s will be, shot with slow zooms.  I did use the pancakes, but not nearly exclusively.

Haha, I apologize, that was a little snarky, aggressive. :)

Honestly what triggered me was in your original post said something about fast glass is NOT for EF-S and fast glass was for your 5D3. There are a lot of folks that want, expect fast glass on APS-C cameras. Some of us have been frustrated by Canon's lack of love in this area and frankly that is what pushed me to look at other systems to fill that compact/travel kit.

EOS Bodies / Re: Best practices for preorder.
« Last post by IglooEater on Today at 09:32:11 AM »
I was at my local camera store yesterday and asked about pre-order and they said no one had asked them yet since it hasn't been announced but they were happy to start a list.

I'm officially #1 and hoping it gets announced next week as expected.

Yes, that's the best way to do it!  Keep local stores alive.

Yup, besides, the beauty of buying online is savings, which you'll not get in a preorder anyways.

We also don't know if and subsequently how Dual-pixel RAW might be implemented. If the new sensor is able to allow dual-pixel dual-ISO operation then you could have better highlight retention at high ISO which could be useful in some shooting conditions.
