Thom's Comments: A very modest update from the SL2, with a slight drop in weight and increase in battery life and buffer. You also get a highly cropped 4K video capability that the previous model didn't have. I actually like this little DSLR—and it is little compared to most APS-C DSLRs—and find it attractive for the casual consumer. I note a lot of those just use this camera in Live View mode, as the Dual Pixel focus is pretty good, and coupled with the swivel LCD, that allows for selfies.
