Canon has just refreshed the top part of its entry-level Rebel series and it's looking more serious than ever before. The Canon EOS Rebel T6s and its Rebel T6i sibling use the same 24.2MP APS-C sensor and offer a new Hybrid CMOS AF III system with sensor-based phase detection for improved live view focusing.

The T6s provides a top panel LCD for a quick look at settings along with a rear panel command dial, while the T6i skips these features in favor of a more beginner-friendly approach. We've spent some time with both models - take a look at a comparison between the models and our impressions on handling them.
