If a manufacturer puts the card slot on the bottom, inside the same compartment as the battery, it is a pretty good indication that there is zero intention to add a battery grip. For example, the EM5 puts the SD card on the side and the battery on the bottom and provides a grip. The PENs put the SD card in with the battery, and do not make a grip.

IMHO, if a grip is offered, it will strictly be 3rd party. The design of the SL1 does not lean itself to a battery grip. Obviously Canon feels the same.

I agree. I am also confused at how a grip on a camera never designed for a grip would work from a 3rd party. If Canon never plans to make a grip for it, how would the controls on the grip work?

I guess you could make one that was just for holding more batteries, but that seems like a poor reason to put a grip on it.

How do you like the Olympus 21mm?

I am thinking that either the Pentax 20mm or Olympus 21mm would make for a nice compact walk-around lens on the SL1/100D.

Wow, I didn't know it's that old!

To answer your question, I LOVE the Oly 21mm f3.5 lens.

"How do you like the Olympus 21mm? "

It is a very fun lens (beside taking good pictures) it is also a lot less expensive than Zeiss 21mm f2.8 ZE.


BTW, I have a flash question to all of you new SL1 owners. Have you guys use your SL1 with the new Canon 90EX flash? Is it worth using it over the built-in flash on SL1?

I'm using the 270EXII. It's perfect for the SL1, and much more versatile than the 90EX. You can control all the flash settings from the back of the camera.

Well.

The wife and I have been on vacation in the California wine country for the past week. I took my 5D3 for my main camera, and the SL1 as a lightweight alternative for hikes or evenings out. I let the wife shoot with the SL 1 for a while, and now she's commandeered it! She really like it because of the small size and light weight. The SD card makes it easy for her to upload pix to her ipad and share with friends. and it takes better pictures than her Powershot 260SX. I guess I'll let her keep it and get myself another one... :cool:

i don't think the grip is need. battery life is good. as long as you don't keep reviewing your photos and use external flash.

After shooting the SL1 for the past week, I took my 5D3 with my 16-35 on it. All I can say is that I knew it was much smaller, but after a week's use, it feels so much smaller now that I have been shooting the 5D3 again.

I was thinking about picking up a refurb 35 f2 for $200.00 as a lightweight prime for the SL1 - anyone have this lens?
