Two exciting and two not so exciting products. The flash sounds interesting.

I don't see a point for the new ultra-affordable line of 4000D. Price for the current 1300D here in Germany is 300 € for the body. Would 4000D cost around 200 €? If not, then there is no point.

It reminds me on Canon EF-M camera from 1991, which also had a plastic mount and was really cheap.

I haven't heard the price yet on the T100/4000D, but if they're wanting to get under say $250USD with an 18-55, I think that's worth the time.

Street price of $250USD for 18-55 combo sounds good.
Considering MSRP for the current 1300D at $550 and the street price at about $350 for the 18-55 combo the MSRP for the T100/4000D + 18-55 should be located at $450 or less. If MSRP is at $350, it would make the camera a very good deal indeed.

because canon's world doesn't revolve around your opinion ;)

canon is running them side by side .. what gets into your shorts so much that it's the right way of doing it? versus eliminate the highly profitable rebel lineup just for giggles?

100% agree.  The only way to do it.

My (seemingly eternal) curiosity is understanding how/when Canon will finally stop updating SLRs and only offer mirrorless.  This will be a gradual move, segment by segment, etc. but exactly how they'll do that is fascinating to me.

Will they just stop offering Rebels (long time from now) and folks use EOS M instead? 

Will they literally just pull the mirrors out the Rebels and keep the EF-S mount so that folks with EF-S glass aren't left out in the cold?

The thing about the rebels, is that they “look like a real camera”, and that’s part of the marketing appeal to the general public. My suspicion is that there will be a mirrorless rebel at approximately the same form factor as now....

I am surprised that we don’t have a mirrorless rebel yet....... there really isn’t much of a difference from this camera to a mirrorless crop EF Mount camera, just make the case a different size and change the mount.....


Also, I am really curious as to the new file formats..... the last time I was so interested in a body release was when the 5D2 came out!

IMO, i think they'll continue to create them until they stop selling.

The customers will decide when they vote with their pocket book.  Mirrorless cameras currently go for greatly elevated prices, but likely cost less to make.  Canon could put out a morrorless with 18-55 for $250, but they are staying in the high profit area as long as they can.

Canon has been promoting robotic assembly of cameras, maybe the new low cost model is 100% robotically assembled.
