Canon EOS 700D and EOS 100D come to light

One’s the best-specced EOS to date, the other’s the smallest – we take a look at Canon’s latest DSLR issue

Canon’s EOS cameras feel like old friends now, so we’re hoping to be invited to the Christening of its new family members – the EOS 100D and the EOS 700D.

The 700D is Canon’s new EOS flagship – a camera the company claims is its most advanced consumer EOS to date – while the diminutive 100D (the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR ever made, pictured top) is staking out its territory in the entry level bracket.

At a glance specs reveal an 18MP CMOS sensor apiece, plus nine-point autofocus, 5fps burst shooting and full HD video, but the superior components and performance of the EOS 700D lend it a price premium of £620 over the 100D’s more modest £570 when the pair become available in late April.

A new kit lens – the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, £240 – will arrive at the same time.
