Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera

Screen_Shot_2013-11-14_at_4_59_39_PM
Review Date: Dec 19, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $359.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Small, light and full featured. Can use all my EF lenses on it.
Cons:
None so far

I bought this refurbished, on sale from Canon, for my GF to use a decent camera when we go hiking. This is a Rebel. No question about that. It is not as good as my 70D or 5D2 or my Oly EM-10 for that matter. But for what it is, it is great. A tiny ultra-light, pocketable (with my pancake lens) large sensor high quality point and shoot substitute.
Love it so far.


 
Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM

2843009
Review Date: Mar 14, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $649.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp even wide open, USM, IS, 58mm filter size so it is compact
Cons:
No included hood at this price

I bought this for landscape as my 24-105mm is lacking in sharpness in the corners. This lens delivers. Many are complaining about the price. I agree at $849 it is overpriced but with rebates and discounts I got it for $649 and that is fair for this quality. I could not justify $1500 for the f/1.4. The dxomark score for this lens on a 5D2 is 26 compared to the f/1.4 score of 28.
