Editors Didn't Like

  • No flipout screen
  • Expensive
  • No WiFi or inbuilt geotagging
  • High color saturation in tone priority mode
  • Despite its reduced size, body not as small as most compact system cameras because it still has to accommodate the DSLR mirror
  • LCD is not articulating (like it is on the T4i/T5i)
  • Dynamic range and high ISO performance not as good as some competing models
  • Only one crosstype AF point
  • Limited amount of AF points compared with its closest rivals
  • No cheaper than the Canon EOS 700D
