I started on the 550d and loved it. Though I quickly shoved a grip on it before moving to the 7d. The specs proposed here would make a lovely little starter camera, its a shame most will likely keep it on the abysmal 18-55mm kit lens.

Why is 18-55 abysmal? Today's STM versions are pretty decent, and not everyone is a prime lens fundamentalist
I didn't say anything about prime lenses. i will however admit to never trying the stm version, that would at least address the focus speed and sound. However, unless the optics have vastly improved it is still a slow lens that produces meh images and doesn’t show off the sensor at its best. It is not that I am expecting canon to shove in a L lens, I just think it is a shame that so many of these cameras will never get the chance to show off a little more.

What would a 24MP/7fps camera need a UHS-II slot for?
It takes a while to clear the buffer on my 80D which only has a UHS-I slot. Be nice not to wait 2/3 minutes before I can look back at the images I’ve just taken. (Talking a burst of 20 RAW files or something..)

I do not believe you will have such a delay with a UHS-I like Sandisk Extreme Pro that writes at 90MB/sec.

Even if it gets UHS-II, you might have to wait a while for the buffer to clear. Just Canon limiting the camera in some way, perhaps to save the poor mirror and shutter at 7 FPS.

7 FPS with a 12 image limit. But I would be delighted if it can run for a while, the xxxD line are great little cameras with a 70-200 attached.

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.
In AF servo mode my EOS 1n is still more accurate than my 5DS. I bet for moving subjects all the 1 D series would spank even the latest Rebel.

But as far as many other 'specs' are concerned you're undoubtably correct.

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.
This appears to have the 80D/90D AF sensor, which, at least as implemented in the 80D, is still not quite as good as the 1D Mark IV in terms of accuracy and shot-to-shot consistency. I don't see anything about AFMA, either.

Wish they would make a mirrorless version of this rather than cameras like the M50 and M6 that feel like child’s toys.

So, is this the same camera as CanonNews has listed as a rumor for the Rebel X10i?

Hey now, I took some of my best pics on the pre-STM 18-55, also on the T2i, long before it ever occurred to me to buy another lens. I actually just picked up my T2i a few days ago. Compared to my 80D, it's lighter and easier to use, and there's nothing that compares to that little 18-55 kit lens for performance to weight ratio. That 18mp sensor is still great for everything besides low light and high dynamic range shots. I've actually considered using it again for travel and more risky situations. I baby my 80D way too much.
