    “18.0 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor The EOS Rebel T5 has an 18.0 Megapixel CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor that captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers more than enough resolution for big enlargements or crops – your photos can be printed and framed without having to worry about quality. This first-class sensor is APS-C sized for an effective 1.6x field of view (compared to 35mm format) and features many of the same new technologies as used by professional Canon cameras to maximize each pixel’s light gathering, helping to ensure images are captured beautifully and brilliantly. ”

    “New technologies”? 2009 called. They want their technology back. I almost feel bad for Canon users.

      Overpriced, just like the Coolpix A. Both companies neglect their APS-C offerings, Nikon their DX lenses, Canon both lenses and sensors. EVF doesn’t seem to have a price yet for the G1X mk ii. Thinking that with the viewfinder cost added, the X100s will be competitively priced and possibly a better deal if you don’t need the zoom range.

      • Markintosh_x

        EVF is $299

        • Zos Xavius

          ugh. good luck with that canon!

          • Markintosh_x

            BTW, Oly’s EVF – $279, Sony’s – $450. not much surprise about the price.

    • Zos Wankius

      DXO reader huh? Ignorance and stupidity to the next level. Your nick already speaks volumes.

      • Zos Xavius

        Actually my nickname has virtually no meaning. Secondly I am not a dxo fan really, but find their measurements interesting to say the least. Thirdly how is this sensor any different from the one in the Rebel t2i, which was released in 2010(!!!!)??? But hey, lets resort to insults and name calling. Stupid trolls….

  • palmer

    G1xII is disappointing : finer lens, camera slimmer and lighter than previous model, but still ways bigger and heavier than equivalent mirrorless cameras like Panasonic’s GM1 or even Sony’s A5000 / A6000 in the same price ranges…
    I don’t see much interest to get such a fixed lens compact camera for 799$ when you can buy evolutive ones which deliver almost the same or better IQ?

    • madmax

      Price is now too high. Under $700 for the camera alone could be a deal if optional EVF is cheap or sold in a kit with the camera for less than $800. But this camera is in fact smaller and not more expensive than those mirrorless cameras with equivalent lens attached. Also GM1 don´t have tilting screen nor viewfinder. I really don´t see any valid point in your post.

      • ton

        How about compare it to g6 or epl5 or better, an em10? Anyway, I think any modern camera is more than capable of delivering excellent IQ results, it all just differs on features & ergonomics

    • Bollox

      Evolutive? Where did you learn your English? And no, this camera is not bigger than its competition. In fact, it’s smaller and could easily murder a lot of competitors, if it was properly made.
      However, it lacks peaking, second hotshoe for using flash + EVF together, extra dial on the body (customizable), fast autofocus (otherwise, they’d be bragging it has the same system as the 70D). These are primary features because they involve focus control + basic UI: if a camera lacks them, it falls into the toy class.
      The price is also bloated.
      These idiots had a chance of murdering M43 and Nex, but nope: let’s leave some gaps open, let’s add some sloppiness.

      We may get the important missing features in another 2 years?

      • Bollox

        It seems to have peaking… Let’s see how fast the AF is, it might be a half-winner after all. But why always “half”? Was it that hard to make it perfect? We are talking about old tech here.

      • Global

        “Evolutive” is an actual English word (anyone wondering). Although I haven’t heard it outside of politics and technology. It means exactly what it sounds like.

  • Sleeper

    Yawn….. More garbage.

  • Silatshooter

    These camera companies need to get more innovative with their new introductions if they are going to try to pry folks away from shooting with their smart phones!

  • Val Evans

    How about a T5w (w for whatever).

  • Grundel

    I wonder when just anyone in the camera biz will be smart enough to offer a rugged p&s camera with a decent sensor, 1/1.7″ at least. Having a street price of $500-700 this would be a killer of all these colorish little sandshovels with 1/2.3-2.5″ tiny sensors. And if they manage to screw in a good lens (like 25mm/f2.0 wide and around 120-150mm tele in 35mm scale) this may easily drive away a lot of “semipro” p&s’s as well.

    Who needs a Rebel T3i with Wifi? 😉

  • alreadyupsidedown

    Honestly, from about the T2i on, I haven’t been able to tell any of Canon’s low end DSLR’s apart.
