Just posted: Hands-on preview of the Canon EOS 100D/SL1

Good grief Canon.

You market the “the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR* camera” (note, I couldn’t find what the * was referring to in the press notice)

But then you still don’t offer a 20-22mm EF-S pancake lens to go with it? Most (all?) of the mirrorless system offer a pancake with a standard FL (35-40 equiv), but not you.

No, you try and flog your crop SLR customers a 40mm pancake designed for FF. (I don’t recall 65mm SLR lenses being that popular back in the day!).

And don’t get me started on the lack of a fast (f/1.4), modern, EF-S standard prime after all these years!

Still, this new camera will sell like hotcakes to the masses so what do you care. :)
