So any you fans of small cams for pro work interested in the new Canon mini, the SL1?

If I shot Canon I would definitely pick one up. Particularly for travel/backup if nothing else. Having something like this that is small and capable for such a low price almost evens out the cost of a 1dx.

Doesn't make the lenses smaller though. If you already have Canon its fine but all the mirrorless systems are smaller overall.

I love small cameras and small profiles for the sake of not standing out, but I guess this one doesn't really have much draw for me. With my cameras, it is not the size of the body that stands out so much as the size of the lenses. Even with such a small body, you slap a 24-70 on there, and the thing is still going to look massive.

it'll be more smaller cameras, lighter lenses. I do hurt after shooting 5d w/grip + 70-200 2.8 + flash...like a brick!

I don't see any benefits compared to other Canon offerings.

If Nikon made this, hell yea I would get it in a second. Especially because I shoot all primes and it would be a crazy lite setup. Great as a backup.

The camera can be super super small but 90% of the good lenses are super HUGE.
The 40mm pancake is cool but it is plastic and only 2.8

To me it looks like a toy. Might have some use to some people but just like all the other consumer dslrs it is a plastic camera in the end.

I can't handle the Rebel line without getting hand cramps, so this is a definite no-go for me.

Image hooking up the 600 F4 lens to that. You wouldn't be able to to tell there was a camera on it!

No. The body is small and lighter, but the operation will be more difficult. I would like to adjust the camera setting quickly. The small buttons on the small body will make this very challenging.

But, it will be good for travel or personal photos when one pairs a small lens with the camera.

I can't wait until full frame DSLRs reach that size.

I think it would be nice to have. Really tired of a heavy back-up I may not touch all day.

Well I think it is pretty smart on Canon to leverage their enormous lens and accessory line-up in an OM-D or NEX body size. Great for those who are thinking of using a m4/3 camera but not convinced of its entire eco-system yet.

Slap a pancake lens and it would be quite a fun little non-work camera.
