The last tired iteration of a dated design.

The little rebel still has a Canon APS registration distance, so it's correspondingly thick, and the glass is still large. This strikes me more as some marketing maven's shallow take on mirrorless rather than anything new. Get rid of the mirror, reduce the width of the body, and we're in business, right? Right...

That strikes me more as a last dying gasp of old technology, as compared to the EM5 or G5, which make the most out of the very small size, and are bristling with new ideas wrapped up in a small and slender package - even after a lens is installed.

I'm not saying the new Canon won't be good for some people, but it has neither the grip and stability of a larger DSLR, nor the compactness of a high end M43 body... or even a low end M43 body.
