Re: Lets be honest.

Collin, I think you're right about it being a master stroke, but in the competition against Nikon D3200, not against mirrorless anything imo. Canon made room in their line by up spec iterations of the Rebel or by selling T3i along side T4i. This is just Canon's new entry level DSLR, but it will be marketed as something new which is quite brilliant.

If the new lens is very small, it will make a fine little DSLR for people who don't end up ever buying another lens. It's the ultimate Christmas gift type camera. Canon brand. Small. Less expensive. And "new."  Oh, and Canon will laud it's "extensive lens catalog." Brilliant!

The K30 and D3200 are very good cameras already in the same price bracket. K30 is sealed, D3200 has more MP, EOS-B will be more compact. It's already a very crowded room. It's also a non-compete with mirrorless. The very good entry level DSLRs didn't swallow mirrorless alive. Neither will this.

Have a great day Collin. Hope all is well with you.

Best,

Seth
