This is my idea of fun!

Big lens, small body.  Looks like fun, says glass is it!

Better yet, how about a D30 with a set of L prime's? Makes great photos.  8)


Sarcasm?

Wanna make yourself happy?
Get $30, get over to fleabay, and get yourself one of these.
So small, it's barely taller than my 85/1.8 and as thick as my Shorty McForty, 72 shots on a roll so who cares if you waste 'em?

At $30 for the body and $10 for a roll and processing, and $800 for an SL1 and 40mm, you'll get 5500 frames for the same price, and a hell of a lot more fun*.

*fun being a subjective unquantifiable measure, of course
Too much gear, too little space.

I don't use mine anymore, if you want to make an offer PM me. Still works perfectly and I have a new Lexmark battery.

Forget all the high tech guff for a minute...go out and buy a 100D/SL1 slap on a shorty forty, walk down the city street and shoot, shoot, shoot. Go on you know you want too....it's called fellin gooooood! Don't be shy post them here.

Like the idea...  thought had crossed my mind too! :)

The 100D has no Kelvin WB, so no sale.

?? What a strange statement to make??
It can shoot in RAW....and that's really easy to adjust WB.

If you don't have a need or want for a 100D, just say so...but please don't hinge buying / not buying based on some buried tech spec. It just sounds like Cognative Dissonance.
I have no need or want for a 100D...I have a pair of 5DIII's and an S90 which fullfill all of my photographic needs. There is little that a 100D which my 5DIII's can't!

I'm just waiting for someone to post that their 600mm f4 snapped off their EOS-m when they picked up the camera and not the lens.....It's gonna happen at some point!

Whilst I agree that I can just do RAW, maybe also consider that I do not need RAW and the additional "stuff" it entails, or that RAW does not fit into my workflow. Shooting RAW just so I can set the WB to 5600K is silly and cumbersome.

In actually fact, the 100D is a camera I would have bought (and most probably two of 'em), was it not for the fact that I shoot primarily JPEG and that due to Canon's moronic insistence on crippling straight-to-JPEG features on a camera they've labeled as "entry-level" will now add extra time-consuming steps before producing a final picture. I am not complaining about the lack of AF points or low FPS or one SD slot only or no weather-sealing or because it has a built-in flash; I am complaining about Canon intentionally not enabling in firmware a feature already available in the DiG!C processor.

OK, here's the joke ... I can tweak "pro"-grade cameras to produce in-camera JPEG's exactly the way I want them; but I must shoot RAW with "entry-level"-grade cameras to achieve the same result.
Sold most of my Canon gear ... here's what's left: EOS 30D (x2), EF 24mm f/2.8, EF Compact-Macro 50mm f/2.5, EF 70-200mm f/4L USM.

Tempting, but I'm waiting for the SL1X.

I expect rumors should be popping any day now.
Hmmm, you'll wait!

Not sure what you men by not having no Kelvin WB. From the manual:

"White Balance:

Settings
Auto, Preset (Daylight; Shade; Cloudy, Twilight, Sunset; Tungsten Light; White Fluorescent Light; Flash), Custom (Approx. 2,000° - 10,000°K), White Balance Correction, and White Balance Bracketing

Auto White Balance
Auto white balance with the image sensor

Color Temperature Compensation
White balance correction:

Blue/amber bias: ±9 levels
Magenta/green bias: ±9 levels
* Correction based on the current WB mode's color temperature.
Color Temperature Information Transmission
Provided"

The Custom WB setting isn't enough?

Means that can't dial in kelvins manually, hardly a deal breaker if you know your way round the presets.

It's about time canon introduced a wb button, no excuse in this day and age of live view.

My mistake. I read in the specs as being able to set a custom white balance between 2000-10,000 k. After reading through the manual online I see that it is more of a "shoot a gray card" type setup. Not bad, but not how I read it initially.
