I just ordered one for my wife as a surprise for our 39th wedding anniversary. I have a used 15-85 showing up too. Hopefully, it won't feel too heavy on it and even more importantly, she'll love having a DSLR. She just "inherited" my G12 and has been getting some decent shots with it but keeps bumping up against its limitations.... we'll see.

Canon did a good marketing job. Because now it's awesome for a camera to be small and light. Just a few years ago it was the opposite. :rolleyes:

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?

I have the 35/2.0 and I am very pleased with it. It has a little focus noise, but no worse than many other lenses, and it's sharp. Worth every bit of $200.

Not really. Here on the forum, and generally on enthusiast forums, the bigger, the better. How many times have you read things like "I have the hands like the Hulk's and couldn't even hold a Rebel". ;) But the marketplace in general has always preferred the smaller, less expensive cameras. Canon releasing a camera capable of rivaling the quality of it's bigger brothers in a small package is a good move I think. I hope it does well for them.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I like full size cameras when shooting, but they are to much of a pain to lug around for everyday use. For some time I've been thinking about an M 4/3 setup. Can never get around the need for new lenses, flash units, etc. The SL1 may just be the answer to compliment my standard Canon kit.

Hi All,
Got mine on Saturday - and have been getting a hard time getting it to work with my m42 and contax lenses. Over exposed shots and all, but a few keepers are below. I moved onto this from the EOS M (which was a brilliant camera). Prefer the form factor of the SL1 / 100D and the added viewfinder helps as well. Still learning the ropes - and I've noted some back/front focus issues with the 50mm 1.8 - but nothing that serious.

This is exactly why I got an SL1. If you already have some of Canon's lightweight gear, it makes sense to consider the SL1 as part of a compact/lightweight alternative to your traditional DSLR.

In my case, I already had a 270EX II flash and the GP-E2 GPS unit. I got the SL1 with the new 18-55 STM kit lens, and also got the EF-S 55-250 for a steal on Amazon ($174!). The SL1 body, the two lenses, and the 270EXII flash, all fit into a Crumpler 4 Million Dollar Home and makes the perfect portable package for short trips or nights out. The SL1 operates very similarly to all other Canon cameras that I have used, so the learning curve was very flat for me. Basically, it was attach the lens, and start shooting!

That is what I figured. I have been shooting primes lately and while the 40 is a great lens, the extra stop, being a little wider and still very light seems to be a very good balance. According to Canon - it should arrive on Thursday which means it will be on the SL1 for a Friday night walk and shoot with my daughter (she has the T3i). Now if they could only make a 22 f2 pancake in EF or EFS (and not just EF-M), but that is the topic of a different thread...

I'd love one of those.
The 40 is a little narrow for me in many situations indoors.

Just got the new Canon 24mm IS tonight. I think this focal length will match perfectly with the SL1. Here is the post I just made in the Canon 24mm f/2.8 IS USM thread. I am thinking this will be an awesome carry everywhere setup good for day and night!

Just got my 24mm tonight. Too late to do any shooting, but I was able to test out the IS function at 1/4 sec while eating my Chipotle dinner. So far, I'm impressed! See captions for IS ON / OFF.

You'll love it. I have the 24mm IS and the 40mm pancake for my 550D and those 2 lenses make a great walkaround setup. No bag, just the camera and 1 lens in my pocket. Very liberating :-)

Thanks for the info. That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm surprised there isn't more talk about this lens.

I tried and returned a bunch of micro 4/3 cameras (GH1, GH2, NEX-7) and actually owned the NEX-5N for 6 months, but the SL1 is FINALLY a mini camera that I love. And it's a great back up to my 5DIII and shares ALL the same lenses and accessories. What's not to love!

I'm guessing you shot these using the 'food' setting in SCN mode :) :rolleyes:
