I do agree that Canon (or 3rd party) could take a part of the market with small, light, inexpensive primes. (like 40/2.8 and 50/1.8) They could skimp on features (micromotor AF etc.) to achieve it. I would buy them. :)
Good point ... but I wonder why Sigma, Tamron & Tokina have not really ventured into that territory ... maybe the market for small primes isn't big enough for them?

I think you nailed the reason in a previous post ... most people want IS and USM (or equivalent designation), and these two technologies add considerable bulk to a lens.

Also, looking specifically at Sigma ... they have an "EF-S" fish-eye, but because the optics are shared with the Nikon version it is not a true 180 degree perspective on Canon APS-C cameras. So what's the point, Sigma?

Cheaper for Canon to manufacture just one lens with two functions.

But more expensive for the consumer who doesn't want that "second" functionality.

Relate this back to cameras ... nearly all DSLR's now have pretty decent video capabilities. Great, if you want and use it. Not and you're paying for capabilities (i.e. development and production cost) you don't need.

Or what about the DSLR videographer ... does (s)he need 61 cross-type, -3 EV-sensitive AF-points with multi-spotmetering and 1/8000 shutter-speeds? Nope. But (s)he's paying for it.
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

I dont know if it has been said in this thread but cant be bothered to go through the whole thing.

The 100D/SL1 has 9 Af points but only one is cross type just like the 6D so the CR info is wrong. I was really excited when I read it had 9 cross type! I was going to buy one as a small second camera to replace my mirrorless because I like a proper viewfinder.

From Canon "9 AF points (f/5.6 cross type at centre, extra sensitivity at f/2.8)"

yes. evry disappointing. Canon obviously felt the need to market differentiate between SL1/100D and T5i/700D ... the latter has all cross points. Really ridiculous and disappointing.

Canon wants you to look at the 100D ... compare it with the 700D ... and later with the 70D ... decide what features you want and need, and what you don't ... just so's you get a mighty big headache and say: "Screw this, I'll buy a 5D Mk.III, 'cause then I'll have all the features and full-frame to boot! With a 1D-X as backup body."

wow!

I'm suitably underwhelmed

now why would you buy this for the $200 premium over a T3i?
at least the T3i has 3x digital zoom in video mode which nothing else gets  ::)
I think if you are coming into Canon DSLR from the P/S world it might be a very attractive option, but for those of us looking at it from the other direction your comment "suitably underwhelmed" says it all.

BTW: concerning digital zoom in video mode, the 60D has a 640x480 video mode cropped from the center of the screen..... it's really uesfull doing image stacking in astrophotography..... wonder why nothing else has it?

@ Don

the Rebel t3i (eos 600d) has a 3x video crop mode. At 3x the 2mp senter pixels of the sensor is used at it gives a 3x crop i full HD with no loss in image quality with the right lens. This mode is amazing and is the main reason why i bought the t3i.

Eos 650D/600d/T4i/T3i + Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4. HD Video-Crop

(it was removed by Canon on the t3i / 650d , i think they unjustefied got afraid that people would not buy long lenses.

I was hoping that Canon would include it in the new eos 100d, they did not.

Nikon has included this feature in sveral models so i hope that Canon comes to their senses.

I hate to break it to y'all, but that's not a camera.

It's a mechanical black poodle.

No, really!
