Just bought this camera for my wife today :)
i also attached my 70-200 for giggles and it actually did not feel too bad.

Those test shots I posted was taken with my 70-200 2.8 IS, and it didn't feel bad at all.

I think any lens where you would support the setup with the lens anyway, will not feel much worse.

the lenses in the middle however require a little different handling. Not bad, just some times on my full frame where I would not feel like I need to support the lens, I do with the SL1.

I have now had the SL1 for about 2 weeks and have been enjoying "playing" with it: taking it to a party and even a night out with my gf and daughter. This morning, my daughter asked me if we could go to Epcot (Disney is only a 2 1/2 hour drive and we have annual passes) to see the Flower and Garden show (she loves taking macro photos of flowers and butterflies). I figured it would be the perfect chance to see how the SL1 would fare as a travel camera. I brought the kit lens in an effort to keep a light and versatile feel and that is it.

I have attached a few pics from our day out showing different situations. All pics are SOOC. In general, I think the SL1 makes a great light wait travel camera when you want something light weight that doesn't take up much room. I have attached an optech unilock quick release and wrist strap. The SL1 with the 18-55 kit lens was very light and quite frankly, didn't feel much bigger than my S100 or EOS-M when walking around the park. That being said, I am not a fan of the pop up flash and would bring my 270ex in the future.

ok, so I took some shots.. I think this ablum is random from iso 100 to 12,800. Not sure how to show the EXIF data on google plus though. Anyone know?

I didn't see anyone answer you..
I have the EXIF viewer from Google Chrome and right clicking on any of your photos in the link does show you EXIF data and camera used...

I think it's OS related, not brower's. When I had Win XP I could see EXIF data by right clicking on pic.

Yea. On the mac with that extension added, I can't see the EXIF data. Google might chose to render the page differently based on OS. Not sure why that would be true however.

I'm a little confused about the auto focus.

The specs say hybrid. Is this in operation full time or only during live view? I only use live view for video, and am perfectly happy with normal phase AF on the Rebel T2i.

I guess I'm asking this: Will it autofocus as fast or faster than the T2i when using the viewfinder only?

Thanks


Thank you. bw!

Depending what your shooting; it will focus as fast or faster (same number of cross type)

In live view it is much improved. There are demo videos that show it is pretty quick and decisive.
Live view focus on the T2i/T3i is slow and although accurate, not quick in making up its mind.
