Huh, an AF-ON button and a rear wheel. Sort of reasonable given that the 90D got the joystick. I presume that this also means that there won’t be a 77D successor.

Also, a simplified mode dial. I guess if you want to use the scene modes it’s more natural to select them on the touch screen anyway. Plus there are too many modes to fit on a physical dial these days.

Mhh 24.1 megapixel sensor with no crop 4k? so it's not the old 80d/m50 sensor?
That was my first thought as well and scaling it up to FF gives 54MP, so it would also be different from the rumoured 45MP R5 sensor. I hope this makes it into the M300, having eye-AF in servo mode, but smaller than my M6II would be nice to have.

Given the camera is shooting(rumoured) 4K video depending on the codec used UHS-II cards will definitely be useful.
I highly doubt the bitrate is going to be more than 800 Mbps. Canon's current consumer 4K30p shooters , including the 90D, record ~160 Mbps which is less than the sustained max speed of even a cheap mediocre UHS-I card.

You mean 80 not 800Mbps right? Because 800Mbps is 100MB/sec constant rate!

I meant that UHS-I can write at ~100 MB/s, but I was inaccurate in that in practice sustained record speeds of UHS-I cards are more like ~30 MB/s. Still plenty enough for consumer 4K.

Note the manual popup flash (no flash popup button) and the lack of DoF preview button. But I welcome the second dial and back focus button (yes, it could mean 760D/77D line is dead).

With the exception of a metallic body with weather sealing, the 2020 Rebels surpass the old 1D / 1D Mark ii in almost all aspects. If this T8i has AFMA (I doubted it) I would happily buy one.
Aside from the crop factor difference and the material/ergonomics of the body, just focusing on the specs. I was thinking this would really rival a 1D mark IV, you lose 3fps but you have more cross type points and you gain 8mp.
