To be fair, the previous releases did at least improve something:

500D to 550D was 15MP to 18MP

550D to 600D was articulating screen and a few other video features

600D to 650D was improved AF with 9 cross-type points

650D to 700D is nothing really new?!?

I think the 700D is a dead end.  The successor to the 650D is the 100D.  Canon used the year to reduce the size and to reset the Rebel line.  The Rebel won't lead the xxD and xD line in specs.  The Rebel line inherits most of the xxD specs and performance over 2-4 iterations/years.  The 650 closed most of the gap that existed between the Rebels and the 60D.  The 100D's size reduction was done to compete against the micro 4/3rds.

you could buy a 7D . . .

I've heard those things take decent photos occasionally . . .

And here I am having just replaced by T1i with. 60D because I found the T1i too small for comfort with anything but the kit lens (well, that was one reason). Kidding aside, my wife who has much smaller hands than I do and no desire to take the camera out of P mode would love the SL1.

Yer not the market these cameras are aimed at.  They will sell, particularly the small one.  Too bad about AFMA, but the target market won't miss it.

To all the folks thoroughly disgusted with Canon......I'll give you 10 cents on the dollar for your crappy, non-innovative, always-behind-the-power-curve Canon L glass :P.

I think you're barking up the wrong tree.  Judging by the comments above, most of the people posting on this thread don't take photos... I would be surprised if any of them even own a camera.

 in fairness to the complaints, I  have a 60d  and I have been underwhelmed by the t5i  and  the 6d.   The 5d mkii  it's  the  only  real upgrade path I have and while I have the cash, 2600+  is a  hard  pill to swallow.

I remember when I first looking for a dslr, I look for how old the model is, is it has big enough megapixel count. In this sense, canon is doing the right thing to push out a new camera with good looking specs. Marketing strategy. This line is not for frequent shooter.

I can't understand why they still won't allow AFMA in rebels, especially since 99% of all wide aperture lenses needs to be adjusted.

Its just stupid.

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...

I cant hear this any more, alle these people are whining all the time... "ohh again this sensor, blahhh"
If you dont dont want it, dont buy it..

If i could believe in the sample images, the "new" 18mp Sensor is doing it well... waiting for a dxomark.

ps. sorry for my bad english ;)
