Wow so far this camera is pretty nice indeed. At ISO 1600 indoors (f2.8 on the lens) with some faint window light I can still get some pretty good, not overly grainy images even after bumping it in LR. 2 bars of noise reduction in camera and a touch more in LR does the trick but this is something my OMD could have never done.
using a 50mm f1.2
right now outdoors is an overcast day, im indoors, some diffused window light, no inside lights on
So far some notes.
-wishing the screen can tilt without having to flip it out (like sony, olympus, and others).
-back button focus setting is annoying as its all the way out to the edge via the AE lock button as cyberdyne stated. Switching the button with the focus select button helps a bit
-have to get used to changing the aperture with a 2 button press instead of a jog wheel. i havent done this since my 1st gen rebel days!
-focusing in my current condition the camera focuses confidently and quick. Chasing my 2 yr old is no sweat.
-ergonomics are right! I have M to L sized skinny hands. Theres something about a good sized SLR that a X100T can never do. Size is so small on this thing and I can see that if i get a pancake lens, this thing could easily fit in a large pocket.
very impressed so far. This coming from a religious full frame 5D user (5Dc to 5DII to 5DIII). i havent used a apsc camera since my 30D days and before that, the original rebel
Yes there are some Rebel ergonomics that are hard to deal with, definitely. Same with the SL1. The new sensor is quite nice, for those bodies that Canon put it into in the past few years.
The gap at low ISO between the SL2 and 6D2, for example, is a surprising one these days than just 5+ years ago.
