I noticed that our local Costco store had a big pallet full of SL1's with a 2 lens kit today. It was not as small as I had expected, it feels pretty good even in my large hand.
DPR now has their review up, and at high ISO's, it doesn't match the 700D. I found that disappointing. That does not mean its a camera to avoid, but I had hoped for a better sensor, not a step down, even if its a small step.
