Forget that retro silly stuff. This is/ was where it's at:

If that camera had been fitted with a built-in EVF, on sensor phase detect-AF and a better hand-grip, it may well have been more of a success. To be honest, it would have sold a lot better had it been fitted with an EF mount!

I actually don't think it's that bad - perhaps because I had  low expectations? Although the small size and white color kind of makes it look like a toy.

If Canon is after the customer who used to buy point and shoot cameras, then offering DSLR's in multiple colors makes a LOT of sense!

My Wife just got the SL1 several months ago... I would assume that she would be the type of person that this would be targeted for (someone who is more concerned with looks rather than features/functionality.. etc).  She doesn't care for the white.

In regards to the DF... As a child I would have loved this camera... all the knobs and the tiny little numbers scrawled on them.  And I can understand why people are still attracted to this.  But let's face it... it has nothing to do with functionality or versatility. It's all about the looks.  Again... it is for those who are more impressed by the looks... or who perhaps feel a  bit of nostalgia.   Again... not for me.. :-) 

I am not putting any of this down... for those who like it ... it's a great thing... but for me... NO.

A 22mm pancake lens should only make her prettier.  40mm + 22mm pancakes = yummy!
Yes, I totally agree with that. Would be perfect.

While I may not agree with this camera being pretty, I do agree that a 22mm pancake to go with the 40mm would be awesome.

I have to say that I am extremely tempted to get that 40mm in white and mount it to a 1Dx then turn up at the local sports arena to take shots of the big game alongside all the other 1Dxs and white lenses.

Next thing you know, Canon will be offering their rebels in every colour like they did their P&S line in order to garner more sales.

Actually, you're a bit late to the party…   ;)

It would be a nice kit if they offered that. I don't mind the colour very much, but the lenses as such would be a nice combination. A white 22mm on my 5D MkIII would look kind of cool and be a nice wide option.

Could you imagine the outcry if Canon decided to go white with all of its range (from 100D to 1DX) and updating ALL their lenses to white to match?

This forum would implode.  ;D
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

Hideous :o (except for the black one) ... personally I think the model names "100D", "700D" etc look a lot more elegant then the american and japanese name SL i/kiss x or t5i etc ... those letters and fonts make the camera look a little too pedestrian.

I'd buy one if the lenses came with tinted glass in a matching color.

Come on Canon, where is your R&D money?

Oh God! NO! ... can't image holding a chocolate colored camera, let alone matching leness ;D ... but I can understand if some people like the red or even the chocolate colored cameras ... but what's up with the hideous neither silver nor steel colored camera :o

It looks like a close match to the color of one of our vehicles, the color is named 'polished metal metallic'.  I guess the marketing folks thought that sounded better than the real name for the color: gray.   :-X

This is just the first in a whole new line of elegant, white cameras.

I understand they'll call it the Great Gatsby line. And in that line all the Rebel cameras will be renamed "Daisy."
