Do people think the new low-end budget model was supposed to break new DSLR ground with revolutionary new features never seen on a camera before?

Yes they do. I'm pretty happy for now with my T2i. Waiting for the 70d, even with the 18mp sensor...

No. At least for me Im disappointed that they released two new rebels but not a 70D or 7D2. the 60D is nearly 3 years and the 7D is 4 years. They are overdue for an upgrade, not the rebels - especially when the rebel wasnt really upgraded at all except for adding a new small model.

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 highly doubt it'll be any better than any other APS-C... if you're used to FF performance, you'll likely be disappointed. That said, I've never owned FF, and I find the 7d to be perfectly serviceable... you just have to open your lens all the way up, shoot as slow a shutter speed as possible, or give up and bounce a flash. So to answer the question, it probably wouldn't hold a candle to the 5dII, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't function as a backup in a pinch...

We see the same comments every time a new camera is released ...

Some people are quick to criticize any camera that doesn't meet their specific needs.  They see their personal needs for a camera as the only true path for a camera manufacturer, and don't grasp that cameras take different forms to meet the diverse needs of photographers in the world.  And some feel that features can be added with no added cost or labor, and are quick to criticize a manufacturer for leaving anything out.

ummm... you expected significant advances in the rebel lineup?  What are you smoking? 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I was thinking of maybe a baby DSLR for convenience. BUT, no AFMA no sale. Canon, you just lost a potential sale because you don't realize that the baby DSLR could be for newbies and advanced users who want portability.

What, is it not portable?

My reactions are mixed:

T5i - WTF!

SL1 - will probably sell well, but not the camera for me

Power shot 280 - looks like a nice camera.... I have been waiting to replace my p/s and this looks like it will do.

The best camera is the one in your hands

Straight from the Canon Japan website:

Shot at ISO 1600
http://canon-premium.webcdn.stream.ne.jp/www09/canon-premium/eosd/samples/eos100d/downloads/06.jpg

Well, that pretty much confirms it to me. Looks pretty much like my 550d; I can already see the hallmark red/green blotches of pattern noise without even attempting to lift the shadows.

Let's hope they'll do better on the 70d. I don't see why they couldn't. From what I've seen, this problem is much better controlled on the 5d3/6d?

Keep in mind that the Canon is targeting low end amateurs (spelling?) with the T5i and needs to introduce new cameras, if only to keep people interested and to appear to be improving their line up (to compete with Nikon, ...).  Many camera buyers are not knowledge and they either will go to the store for advice and ask for the latest model (or the salesman will say this model is only 3 month old - implication that newer is better) or check out sites like dpreview.com and look at dates and stars.  newer is always better, all things being equal.

Unfortunately those of us (very numerous on this site but not in the gen pop) buy high end equipment but make a small fraction of sales for Canon, Nikon, ...

Always funny to see people complaining that the new low-end camera aren't focused on professionals users needs. The fact is that both these camera's target audience are amateurs who just what to make a few good looking picture easily. The great majority of them have no idea what are AFMA, DR or other. The thing they will see, though, is that they can get just as good picture from this camera that the last model but it is of smaller size, so it is more portable and more practical for them.
Although some might fell "cheated" by Canon, just remember that it is a corporation; its only goal is to make profits, just like any other corporation. They are making the products they think will sale best, and according to the success of those low-end camera, it seems they are doing a good job in it.

OK, now I'm baffled.  This now gives me four alternatives - T3i, T4i, T5i and Twhatever - with very little difference - specs, price, capability - between them.  Canon must have a plan, but right now it looks
to me like different internal development groups were set loose and everything was released.  The new "baby" Rebel doesn't look small enough to draw m4/3 users, the new standard Rebel doesn't have enough "new" features to draw upgrade users.  To quote the king of Siam, "tis a puzzlement!"
The new lens looks promising though, particularly for video users.

The biggest laugh in all of this is I just checked my local canon website and the line up has removed the 650d but kept the 600d..... obviously this is just a ploy to keep the prices inflated with the "new" model.
