I voted for 700D as it almost has no change compared with the 650D. It should named as 651D!.

So what? K-50 has almost no changes compared to K-30 too, and K-500 is even made worse by removal of weather sealing. Of course, 2012 k-30 was better than 2012 t4i to begin with, so the relationship of badge-engineered copies remains. But the SL1 is 4 y/o t2i with smaller battery, less ergonomic body and one mic removed. It is obviously even worse than t4i/t5i.

At the price of the k-500 no one misses the sealing. I do miss the 1 dollar focus confirmation light.

Pentax was acquiring the image of a brand with every DSLR sealed. By releasing k-500, they diluted their brand image. And it is not as cheap as current market prices for bottom of the drawer DSLRs from Canon and Nikon.
