Scottelly: This seems like Canon's answer to the Nikon D5500.
With only 1080p30 video and no IBIS, I'll stick with my Sony A65. The Nikon looks like a better deal to me, since it's $100 less and offers almost everything this Canon has, plus a bunch of functionality that Canons don't have. Frankly, I think I'd get the older Nikon D5300, which has Wi-Fi and does 1080p60 for $200 less. The only things these newer cameras seem to have that's new is the NFC and the touch screen. Of course this new Canon does have that status LCD on top, which is definitely a nice feature, which I do miss from time to time. It makes the camera like a more professional camera too.
This camera does have better/faster live-view focusing though, so it has two advantages over the Nikon D5500: better live-view focusing and the LCD display on top. The Nikons have 3.2" articulating displays though, while this camera has only a 3" display. Also, the Nikons can do 1080p60 (far less rolling shutter effect) instead of 1080p30.
How much for EF 85/1.8 and 35/2 IS analogs for A65?
Suave: While gear junkies tap into their last reserves of vitriol, Canon quietly makes cameras that regular customers want and can afford. Oh, and it has these glassy things, I keep forgetting the name... Marbles? No that's different... ahh, lenses!
That's not the entry level Canon DSLR.
Rodrigo Ayres Bordin: Is it possible to connect the camera to the computer, and download the pictures directly to a folder (Windows), or the camera only connects to smartphones?
On all other Canon wi-fi equipped camers it's possible, but initial setup is a bit complicated, that is it does not just show on your home network as a remote disk. Expect same here.
Tonkotsu Ramen: Canon has one of the worst implementations of wifi/nfc. The apps are way behind what sony and MFT offer.
There's a DSLR-controller level app for Sony?

Tommygun45: This piece of crap will sell in droves this holiday season. Every person who knows nothing about how cameras work but wants to get a 'good' camera will go to Best Buy and be tricked into buying this thing. God the idiocy of the masses allowing corporations to be so lazy. This isn't how its supposed to work people!
Props to you for being such an independent thinker.
I can't wait to put an E-mount Sonnar 135/2 on it and shoot some portraits!
AksCT: Based on specs released, what advantage(s) Nikon D810 offers over this camera?
It has lenses?
Mssimo: DSLR RIP April 1959 - June 10 2015
We still have to see what the AF speed will be like. And Sony still has only 8 native FF E-mount lenses.
Awww shoot, I guessed it'd be 5k.
Dimit: Canon sensor...Rebel body...would anyone expect something outstanding???We live in 2015,in a reasonable consumer world Rebels shouldn't sell over 1k pieces..totally..worldwdle !!
@fmian Which keeps us from being overrun by errr... multiculturalism.
I'd like to hear your reasoning.
Ednaz: I've seen this on almost every Nikon owned, not at f16, but when shooting macro and working at effective apertures of f32 or higher. Not as dense as what's shown, but visible in that specific situation - macro, highly stopped down.
I suspect that there's a "tolerance" level for the spots...
But, but Nikon uses Sony sensors?!
Good, it means that refurbs will show up sooner than I expected.
Let me guess, it needs newer i7, 16-32GB RAM, SSD, and bridged GPUs?
Karl Summers: Manual focus...but can I assume there is a focus confirmation chip?
I bet there is not.
I am alone in thinking that they could spend a few more bucks on exterior?
Most comments look like their authors were born yesterday. Don't you guys know that Canon typically does not get it right before Mk III?
M-m-m.... Will it be 2-3 times better than Bokina and Kiron?
h2k: The headline is about the new lens's price, but then in the teaser text you don't tell the price, the reader has to click onto the link.
I understand that websites want clicks, still i find it a bit funny - announcing a price information, which is a very tiny piece of information (not like a camera test conclusion) and then hiding that information from the introductory text.
"the lens will be priced £999" - it says it right there.
