Canon introduces EOS Rebel T7 with updated 24MP sensor
Canon has just announced the EOS Rebel T7 (EOS 2000D), a beginner-and-budget-friendly DSLR. Designed to replace the existing T6, the Rebel T7 comes with an updated 24MP sensor, but appears to leave out the Dual Pixel AF we've become accustomed to seeing on Canon's APS-C models. The T7 carries over all other aspects of its predecessor's performance, including a Digic 4+ processor with 3 fps burst shooting, a 9-point conventional autofocus system and the same overall control scheme and build.
Canon Europe, meanwhile, has also announced the EOS 4000D, an even less expensive variant. The 4000D inherits the T6's 18MP sensor and Digic 4+ processor but sees its screen size drop to a low-resolution, 230k dot 2.7" LCD. NFC is also omitted. We have no word of a North American launch.
The EOS Rebel T7 will be available in the US in April 2018 with an EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS II lens for an MSRP of $549.99. The EOS 4000D will be available with a choice of lenses, with the EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS to cost €400/£370.
