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?
