As much as I'm really disinterested in the low-end stuff (I'm interested in the high-end stuff but I can't afford it), if tonight is a choice between watching CR for news of a camera I'll never buy, or watching ABC news to see the Labor party stab each other in the backs to be the new Prime Minister, I think I'm suddenly more interested in a new Rebel...
Too much gear, too little space.

Not sure if the official announcement has been made yet, but the camera is now up on Canon's website:

It looks like a 1000D that's reduced in size a little bit...  There's no swivel screen...  :( and it's still Digic 5.

Size/Weight is the next frontier for high-performance cameras.

My ONLY complaint about my 5D3 and big primes setup is the size/weight. My only limitation right now is my reluctance to pack gear because it gets cumbersome. Oh well, and there is one other limitation: budget. ;-)

This body looks like a great deal for the price. The problem is that it doesn't have a solid go-to lens in the standard 35-50mm equivalent range for an APS-C sensor. A solid 24mm or 35mm f/2 for under $500 would make this a lot more competitive with the M4/3 offerings coming out. But Canon doesn't have one. This is where dedicated lenses make sense. This is why Fuji's X100s has a dedicated prime. I'd rather have one great non-removable 35mm equivalent lens... than a choice of 2nd rate lenses or over-priced and/or oversized lenses. And rocking a huge lens on an SL1 defeats the purpose of getting a small camera in the first place.

I asked myself the same. it seems they wanted update the nee kit lens and then renamed the body to go with it. Why not 650D MkIi and then go for a name change qhen new tech comes?.

Canon needs some EF-S primes. 15mm (=24mm FF), 22mm (=35mm FF) and a 32mm (=51mm FF). The EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 (16-35mm FF) at 13.6 Oz is pushing it weight wise. And the EF 85mm f/1.8 (=136mm FF) weighs 16 Oz and is the largest kens I'd feel comfortable using on a SL1.

The small camera seems interesting, but I have big hands.  It does seem to fall in line with Canon's many comments saying that they believe that a smaller body is what users want.
 
If the body has a high performance, enthusiasts may want one, but it does sound like another upgrade path for point and shoot users.  All the camera manufacturers are seeing huge drops in P&S sales and each seems to have their own idea of a upgrade path.  That's critical because P&S sales generate a lot of income.
+1 ... also, putting an APS-C sensor in a small DSLR body takes some skillful engineering ... kudos Canon.

I'd be very happy to get the small one as a secondary body together with the new kit lens. Yes it's small but so is my G11 and S100 too. Would use it for my daughter, probably some time lapse and for trips when I don't want to bring my big gear.
