This is not surprising as it is essentially a re-labeled T4i  ::)

Just Canon up to their usual nonsense..

"This new model has all the features of the Canon Rebel T4i with a few extras… a 360 degree rotating Mode Dial, a series of Creative Filters that can be used when shooting in Live View and an Improved Casing to give the camera a more upmarket look."

Yeah, but the Canon bashers do not want to see the positives.

There are some incremental positives. It's up to the customer to decide if they are worth the extra money.

Hum, didn't the T4i have all cross focus points??

Mind you, I don't mind this $$ grab by canon by tweaking & renaming the T4i. Given that I'd like to update my P&S (a T2i) to something w/ a touchscreen.  & the T5i will likely push the T4i refurbs/CLP's down in price within the next 6-12 months (the black friday sale should be nice this year for the T4i, 60D, 7D & maybe even the 5D2/3??). 

But I'm truly curious, does anyone really believe that the T5i is even an incremental upgrade? I understand that it may be a little embarassing to hard core Canon fans but I really don't care what Canon does with their rebel line.  If it helps Canon stay profitable, I really don't mind. 

Honestly, some of their marketing descions on lens offerings (focal lengths, etc.) is what aggravates me...
still a 5D2 fan

So, the T4i -> T5i rebadging went smoothly, after all. Geez, how did they do it.

I do hope that they don't get good at it, btw ... if you know what I mean.

Historically Canon has almost always released their gear shortly after their announcement ... its only recently that they've been delayed on a few items e.g. 200-400mm lens

They missed a few places though. Noticed this on the "Beautiful Dreamer" T5i commercial this morning:
