The EOS 700D/ Rebel T5i is essentially unchanged compared to its predecessor, sporting an 18MP APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor with built-in phase detection autofocus, a DIGIC 5 processor, a 9-point cross-type AF system, and Full HD movie mode. Differences are limited to live preview of Creative Filters, a new mode dial that turns 360 degrees, a new body finish and a new 18-55mm STM lens to better serve Hybrid AF in movie mode.

The Canon EOS 700D / Rebel T5i is an upgrade to the 650D almost in name only, but still combines very good image quality with a comprehensive, well-designed touchscreen interface. AF performance in live view mode and video is an improvement over early Rebel DSLRs, but still lags behind mirrorless options.
Enthusiasts looking for the manual control and image quality of a DSLR but who'd appreciate the option to use a touchscreen interface.
Not So Good For
Users who require fast AF performance in live view and/or video mode.
Nikon User Switches to a Rebel T5i Over Tethering Issue and Poor Nikon Support
Hello, I've been a Nikon user for over 10 years. I work in a research lab and mainly use cameras for light box product work with the camera tethered to a computer. I finally had enough with Nikon when our camera would not connect to and be recognized by Nikon Camera Control Pro software. I called Nikon support and they said they would take the case and call back shortly, however I never heard from them again. The Nikon Camera Control Pro software is a bad joke and a frustrating waste of time. ...
700D/T5i Great Camera
I used T1i for a month while waiting 700D arrive and it was quite interesting going from a bridge fto a dslr. After a week with T5i can say it is an amazing machine. I thought the overall performance far exceeds the T1i , the difference is not small . I also used the T2i from my brother a while and is also mush faster. The grappling of the camera is very good and the hand strap that i bought made it perfect. She responds very quickly and with the memory card Sandisk Extreme 45MB / s ( 32GB is ...
Great product - AF for Sigma lenses don't seem to function
I've recently upgraded to Canon EOS 700D and indeed so far I'm very happy with it. However it confuses me why it wouldn't auto-focus my old Sigma 10-20mm and Sigma 18-200mm lenses neither in still nor in movie mode unlike my very old 350D did.

A beginner who is wondering if it's worth investing in a certain Canon model
I'm by no means a professional, but I want a camera that'll last me a good while and enable me to take some decent shots. Through Canon, I'm thinking of going with a refurbished T5i. First of all, are the prices listed below for these cameras a good deal? Secondly, is it worth upgrading to the 18-135mm STM lens kit for the extra $160? http://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/cameras/refurbished-eos-digital-slr-cameras/eos-t5i-18-55mm-is-stm-lens-kit-refurbished http://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/cameras/refurbished-eos-digital-slr-cameras/eos-t5i-18-135mm-is-stm-lens-kit-refurbished
t5i is almost identical to the t4i. Price seems a little high to me for that class of camera, actually. A Sony A58 or a Nikon D5100 sell for less money, and I would personally prefer either. A58 is a very different sort of beast, so it's hard to compare side-by-side, but the D5100 is very similar. The T5i has a touchscreen, but the D5100 has a much better sensor. Personally, I'd do 18-135mm lens, assuming the Canon lens is reasonable. If you can splurge, and you like EVFs, Sony a77 is heavily discounted right now, and a bargain. Pro-level body with 18-135mm lens for $240 more than the Canon. Successor is rumored to be just around the corner, and so Sony is probably dumping inventory. If you have friends/family with Canon lenses, or like Canon ergonomics, of course, that's more important. Continue Reading
So how did you arrive at choosing Canon, and why a DSLR? Sometimes it's worth buying refurbished through the manufacturer, but usually not; often you can find the same camera new, cheaper. If you're not set on Canon, you could get the Nikon D5200 new for substantially less: http://www.rakuten.com/prod/nikon-d5200-24-1-megapixel-digital-slr-camera-body-with-lens-kit-18-mm/246807205.html? Continue Reading
The 18-135 is good if you expect to take a lot of portraits. Otherwise I would find a deal that bundles the 55-250 with the 18-55. Unfortunately Canon does not seem to have that combo as a refurb at this time (but call just to be sure). Shopping for a new DSLR is tricky because it is not always clear which are authentic USA warranty and which are really grey market. Kelly Cook Continue Reading
Which lens or lenses to keep?
I was given as Christmas gift the following: Canon T5i 18-55mm STM 55-250mm IS II (the non STM) 50mm f/1.8 Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Macro HSM In the passed 3 months, I found myself rarely use the 50mm f/1.8 but still plan to keep it. However, there are really duplication of the two Canon lenses and the Sigma. I compared the several hundred of photos which I have taken in this period with the related 3 lenses, believe that the 18-55mm is a little better than the Sigma at 18-22mm in IQ and the 55-250mm seems more capable from 200mm to far end 250mm if compare to the Sigma. However, the Sigma is always on the T5i recently as I never feeling the need to bring the other two lenses with me. It's nothing related with "the afraid of changing lenses", but I just not seeing the worth of doing it. To cut it short, what should I keep? Keep the Sigma and sell the 18-55mm and 55-250mm or the other way? I know they worth not much but it just not make sense keeping something to gather dirt. Thanks ...
This is the key: if the 18-250 satisfies your criteria for acceptable images, keep it. Both your long lenses are pretty slow at the long end (f/5.6 for the Canon, f/6.3 for the Sigma). In future you might become more demanding in your tastes or want to shoot in more difficult conditions: if that happens you'll need something better than the 55-250 so there's no point keeping that one as well as the Sigma. The 18-55 is trickier. Some day you'll want to upgrade from your T5i. You might decide to keep it as a back up or you might sell it. Your chances of selling it will be slightly better if you bundle it with a kit lens (after all, that's one reason why makers sell bundles) so as you won't get much for it on its own it might be better to keep it safe in a cupboard. I agree that you should keep the 50/1.8. Continue Reading
Gerry's advice is sound, unless you use the 200+ end of the Sigma very often, in which case you might want a better and brighter telezoom anyway. Continue Reading
Getting into DSLR world
For sometime, I've been reading reviews and going through the spces of DSLRs to pick the right one for me. After some careful selection, it has narrowed down to these three, Nikon 5200, Nikon 5100, Canon 650D * Even though there is the new Canon 700D, I've simply taken it out of consideration due to lack of improvement from the predecessor. * The question is between these three cameras. Since I'm getting into DSLR world, there is no issue in selecting either one of them. (like lenses, build of cameras, GUI & etc.) * According to many reviews, the Nikon duo stands ahead of the Canon 650D. And also, I'm not a big fan of the touch screen. It's only going to leave marks on the screen after using the touch screen. * I'm more of a travel photographer (that includes both day and night shots with low light). Therefore, I feel that the Nikkor 18-105mm lens would suit me as the kit lens. And also, it's cheaper compared to Canon 18-135mm STM. * The biggest question remains between the Nikon ...
There has always been, and will always be greener grass on the other side of the fence. I am not all that familiar with the D5100/5200, and know nothing about Canon offerings. It sounds like the D5100/5200 is pretty much like the D7000/7100. Rather than the 18-105, I would recommend the 16-85. It costs a little more, but is a better lens. Later I would add a 70-300. Check this link to the D5200/70-300. He may have a better opinion than I do. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51727418 Continue Reading
I just bought my first DSLR a few months ago. Previously I had been using an Olympus EPL-3. I went with the D5100, 18-105 and 35 1.8g and I could not be happier. The better AF of the D5200 would be nice, but when you factor in price, I don't think you can beat the D5100 right now. There is always something that is a little better and little more expensive, but the D5100 does everything I need and more, and my whole kit cost less than $800. ETA: the Sensor in the D5100 is excellent. I think you'd need really expensive glass, or real pro level talent to pull anything noticeably better out of the D5200 in that regard. Continue Reading
I started with a factory refurbished Nikon D3100 and 18-55 kit lens a few months ago. It was around $350 which I feel was a real bargain. The D3100 was my first DSLR and made an excellent learning platform IMO. I wanted the additional features like 39 focus points, auto bracketing, better video, articulating screen, 24 megapixels and more of the D5200. But as the knowledgable and generous members of this forum suggested, I could do fine with the D3100 body and better lenses. So for $200 I bought the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G lens and it was a BIG jump in image quality. The next lens I wanted for the D3100 would be the 70-300 VR. Then in June Nikon ran a "buy more and save" promotion and I could buy the D5200 body with 70-300 VR lens and save $200 off the individual purchase prices. I went for it. No regrets. I love the camera and lens. My 35mm f/1.8 lens works beautifully on the D5200 and I recently bought a wide angle lens. I'm going to do my best to make this a "three lens kit" and stop ...
