Jeremy Park: Just ordered one... this little guy will make a great 2nd body to have as a back up in the kit bag alongside the 5Dmarkiii. It takes all my prime lenses, it's super light, takes up little space, shoots reasonable enough quality in the event I ever need to use it on a job and it may in fact be give me more creative control with video focus options for shooting videos created for online. At this price it's got a lot going for it. I thought to wait until the 70D, but at half the price and only really buying it as an insurance policy in the unlikely event my 1st body dies.... a no brainer indeed. ( got the 40mm also as it seems like they might just hang out and be good friends!)
I have a 5d3 and just got the SL1. Also have the 40mm. Great combo. You wont be disappointed. SL1 makes the 5d3 look like a monster. I'm going to skip the 70d and wait for the 7d2. That will be an awesome trio of bodies.
Axel Vercauteren: Better AF in live view, nice.Alas nothing about how accurate the picture on the LCD of the final image is. Also: how well is exposure simulated?
Chimping the lcd is the worst thing you can do to gauge the quality of the shot. Most of the time the lcd makes the shot look much better than it really is.
Neloy Sinha: Oh! I love this cute chubby adorable "baby". Thanks to Cannon think tank. They removed the mirror but retained the grip. Other wise one has to buy the grip from a 3rd party.As it is from the stable of Canon I will not go for hair splitting criticism but would like to see the baby on few more attractive colors in future.
You didn't look hard enough.
I have no idea what you are saying.
Got mine yesterday. Awesome little camera. Looks so cute next to my 5D3. If you have large hands don't be put off. It just takes some time getting comfortable with the size. I had to try a few different ways to hold it before I found a way that worked for me. Love the little thing.
