Also, I did not see the 3x10 digital zoom feature, so I guess that was removed from this model. For those who don't know, the 3 zoom position was great at reducing moire/alias issues when shooting video. Yes, the resolution degrades, but, for some, moire/alias issues are of a greater concern.

Well, it's not the new sensor. The new Canon EOS M has the same sensor and does have the crop mode (digital zoom)!

"The 3-10x electronic zoom first seen on the EOS 600D, but mysteriously missing from the EOS 650D, is also available - with minimal loss of quality at the 3x setting."

This is from the EOS M preview:

So they just decided to not include that feature, just because?
Fortunately this means they could add it in a firmware update.

NikonHaoleboy: What don't I understand? You say that the lens has "an F2.8 maximum aperture across the entire zoom range". The front of the lens is marked "1:2.8/4.5-108".

It's 4.5-108 mm zoom lens (25–600 mm equivalent). The number 4.5 is the wide angle of the lens, not an F number. It's F2.8 across the entire zoom range.

No, you don't.

That's the one thing I'm really not happy about. Why in the world did they remove such a useful feature? Could it be because of the new sensor? If it's not, I really don't see a logical reason to do it...
