Canon T5i vs T4i

I was looking over the preview of the T5i on dpreview. I couldn't see anything new though? It had a paragraph on Hybrid Auto Focus. But the T4i had this, did they improve on it with the T5i at all? is there any difference between the old and new?

According to the article this is the difference...

"Among the few improvements, the 700D includes a new mode dial that turns 360 degrees, a new 'upmarket' body finish; and real-time preview of Creative Filters in Live View mode."

If that's the case, why did Canon even bother, lazy on their part I think when they could have fixed the video autofocus!

I agree, nothing interesting there.

Upmarket body finish? Was that needed?

From the pictures the finish looks the same as the T4i though.

There's nothing new and improved. Same old 18MP sensor that Canon rehashed for the last 5 years.

It's just a rebadged T4i :(

Uninspiring to say the least.

Treading water is a poor decision, while Nikon continues to improve models. Canon is sitting on their laurels, which never ends up well. :mad:

The "new" 360 mode dial looks cheap and tacky, to me.

This is just a stupid, money grabbing decision on Canon's part and doing this Canon is hoping those that always must have the latest camera will buy it.

I wouldnt say theres anything wrong with the finish on the current body - I certainly wouldnt want to pay extra to have a slightly nicer one. The few new things they have added seem like it would have more suitable to just upgrade the next batch of T4i's than try and claim it as an entirely new model.

Canon has taken stagnation to levels only found in nearly empty ponds.

All I know is - the people who just bought T4i's during the fire sales at $650 or so instead of waiting look brilliant. The only nice thing about this camera is the new kit lens.

I have a 600D and I would not consider the upgrade at all. I'd rather take the jump up to a 70D if it appears.
