Reviews Word on the street

EOS 1100D  vs 100D 

While video is probably the main application for the SL1’s improved Hybrid AF, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it worked when composing and shooting casual snapshots.
EOS 100D

Although the raw files definitely contain more detail, the difference is only slight, especially at lower ISO sensitivities and most should be pleased with the results direct from the camera.
