Borrowlenses.com, the leader in DSLR lens rentals recently reviewed the new Canon Rebel T5i before it ships out. And from their review, I gather that they’re a bit disappointed. I know that I’ve complained in a previous blog that Canon seems to pretty much be putting the same/very similar internal camera into a new body (T2i, T3i, T4i), and it looks like this may be the case with the T5i as well. Borrowlenses says if you have a T4i, don’t buy in to the “upgrade” “So what good is this camera? For a T4i owner, not much. It is about $100 more than the T4i was last year (body only) and it just doesn’t seem worth the upgrade.”
Not much on the T5i has changed since the T4i:
-Same megapixel count (18) and same sensor
-Same LCD menu
-Same 1080p video, mic, and 3.0″ Vari-Angle Touch Screen
-Same 9 Point All Cross-Type AF System and ISO
