Ah finally someone with sense ! Yeaeh let’s look at how much they cripple their camera first. Maybe u can use it with one lense only...Looking forward to seeing how they cripple it to protect their 90D. Will it be like the EOS RP and not have 1080/24? Will it not have any 60fps rates?
I don’t get how people can complain about the features of a camera aimed at the absolute beginner end of the market. People who have never used a DSLR before don’t need 27+ focus points.
Some people have the idea that there should only be one purchase option and that it should have all the very latest technology for $99.99. Anything else is crippling, nerfing, and ripping off the purchaser even before the purchase. They'll sometimes even accuse Canon of "forcing" them to make a purchase. Damn long term profitability and survival of the company. For those people, everything is about themselves. They scream, "Sony!" year after year, but they never go buy that dream camera. They'd rather keep living the nightmare they cry they are having.i simply don't get all the fuss about a damn Rebel camera. It is not supposed to be cutting edge - just a new model in the lineup.
Those people will buy the RP. Only 2.78 oz heavier and it takes their lenses. The "higher end" folks don't much care about the price difference.Lots of people recommend the SL2 just because it's lightweight, but the AF system is from the stone age. There would be a bigger market for higher end users who just wanted a light camera if it had a more reasonable number of AF points.
For me, the SL2 is a great camera to carry with me when hiking or biking and I don't want to be bothered with my "big boy" cameras. The limited focusing system can be frustrating, but other than that, the quality of images is great. With the pancake 24mm it's a fun street photography camera and with the 18-400 Tamron it's a handy walking-around-tourist camera.
I still dream of a SL? that has a focusing system at least equal to the original 7D. Looks like I will be waiting awhile for that.
That's the trade off, isn't it? The "high end" market you mentioned probably is not so price sensitive and are willing to spend for the increase in focus points. This is obviously not aimed at the high end. It's only money, after all.Not if you prefer a DSLR. Not if you don't want to pay $1,300.
