The Rebel T5i - What am I Missing?

Canon EOS Rebel T5i
Here is a list of changes/upgrades in the Rebel T5i from the Rebel T4i:

  • New Finish
  • 360° Rotation Mode Dial
  • Larger and Raised Icons on the Mode Dial
  • Addition of Scene Mode to the Mode Dial
  • Digital Zoom during Movie Recording
  • Real-time preview of creative filters in Live View
  • New 18-55mm STM Kit Lens
Canon informed me that the entire imaging pipeline is the same. Same AF system as well.
 
While I would of course rather have the newer model, the above-listed additional benefits will set you back, at announcement time, an additional $100.00 USD for the body-only and $250.00 USD for the 18-55mm lens kit (with the $150 instant rebate in effect).
 
Am I missing something? Or should the T5i perhaps be better-named the T4iN?
 
Is anyone going to pay the price for these minor T5i upgrades?
 
Is a full T5i review worth the significant time and cost required to create?
 
Let me know what you think over at our Facebook page.
