For instance, I would have no idea in my head without looking it up, as to how to dress if the weatherman on morning TV said it would be 20C outside....but if he said 20F outside, I'd know to bundle up as that it was really really cold out.
The US isn't likely to change anytime in the near future, so, no need to get on a soapbox, and try to sound sophisticated and holier than thou about it all.
And I do believe the US aren't the only ones to still use non-metric measurements, I even understand that in some EU countries they occasionally still use imperial units of measurements for some common every day things....pints of beer, etc?

I’m winding down a career in a research lab. Almost everything that we do is metric, except when dealing with our neighbours to the south.My undergraduate degree was in Biochem....
But still, outside of the lab, I've never found a real use for the metric system in every day life in the US.
It has been the same with Canon's cheaper cameras for many years, so it is nothing unusual or unexpected.Is it just me, or does it seem like this update might have been less about "Canon wants an updated SL" and more about "Canon wanted to put the Digic 8 in the SL, and that meant they could easily add some video features and call it a day"? That was the only hardware upgrade I can see, and the feature upgrades are video features that match other Digic 8 cameras. Now the SL3 can soldier on into the future after the Digic 7 stops being produced.
Or maybe coffee hasn't kicked in enough.
Thanks for the great advice !I would definitely go the rp out of those two. As a compliment to my 7d2 it would make far more sense than another aps c body. And if i remember correctly from your past posts you shoot a 7d2 aswell.
