Small Size, Big Possibilities. As the world's smallest and lightest digital SLR camera*, the new EOS Rebel SL1 is small in size but enormous in performance. With a newly-designed Canon 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and speedy Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor, it delivers images of extraordinary quality - ideal for those stepping up from a smartphone or compact camera. An impressive ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to H: 25600) for stills and 100-6400 (expandable to H: 12800) for video plus up to 4.0 fps continuous shooting make this camera the go-to for any photo opportunity, even in dim lighting or when capturing fast action subjects. And Hybrid CMOS AF II delivers accurate AF tracking during Live View shooting, helping ensure your photos and movies are crisp and clear. The EOS Rebel SL1 makes amazing movies with Canon EOS Full HD Movie Mode with Movie Servo AF, working in concert with Canon STM lenses for smooth and quiet continuous AF. In addition to its Optical Viewfinder, the EOS Rebel SL1 has a bright, wide Touch Screen 3.0" Clear View LCD monitor II, perfect for viewing a number of special scene modes and Creative Filters available in real-time display. Here is the DSLR you'll want to bring with you everyday and ignite your imagination! *Among digital SLR cameras which use APS-C size equivalent sensors. As of March 1, 2013, based on Canon's research.
For the Rebel line of DSLR's I cant understand why anyone would buy the T5i when this is for all essential purposes the exact same camera but in a smaller body.
As an enthusiest with small hands I feel this is perfect, granted I'm still use to larger bodies.
overall it is an excellent camera.

Awesome smallest DSLR by Canon
Brought this few days back and have taken tons of pictures with AF and MF...awesome pics similar in comparison to some higher versions of Canon. Also small body doesn't make it less of features at all..Has almost everything and touch screen is very useful. Kit lens are nice but will prefer buying some more lenses. overall superb camera if you are looking for something light to travel...

Bought this for the wife. I've got the 5D MK lll and figured it would make a nice backup. I 've tried all my other lenses with it and no problems. In fact quite a nice package with the 40 mm pankake lens! I enjoy "borrowing" it. Highly recommend.

Purchased the SL1 for my wife. The 18-55mm IS STM kit lens that comes with the camera works very well. However, I tried to use an older EF-S lens that is "not" STM and the camera would not focus when set to AF.
Essentially the camera would try to focus "unsuccessfully" to the point that the shutter wouldn't respond.
If you are new to Canon and are building your library of lenses this is a nice APS-C sensor camera. If you are like me, and have older EF-S lenses; look elsewhere!
The camera is going back tomorrow...sorry Canon!
