How the new Canon 1300d will be look like? The new 20.2 pix sensor from the Canon 70D or the old 18 Mpix unit? What will be considered as an entry level camera in 2015? Seems Canon kept this entry line parallel with the smaller sized Canon 100D. The difference between this cameras are approximately 100-150g and 5-10% of size. The smaller Canon 100d is perhaps only better with a pancake lens attached, like the 40mm f/2.8 stm. To have more Canon pancake lens would be beneficial. Now Canon also has the 24mm f/2.8 pancake as well, for profiting the small size. The 24mm is more useful on the crop camera.

No information about the Canon 1300D price yet, but it will be cheaper than the “bigger” models.

Canon 1300d functions

The big question does the new camera will get the dual pixel AF technology which first occured in the Canon 70d? Everybody agrees it will soon appear in all Canon dsrl cameras, but currently only available in the Canon 70d.
