  • Lens takes time to focus in video mode, Optimisation issues, Not too much difference over its predecessor, Expensive
  • Littlechanged from the earlier T4i, Slow Live View and video autofocus, High ISO performance is unimproved, Belowaverage battery life, No dedicated AF illuminator
  • Lacks weather sealing of one direct competitor, 95% viewfinder coverage makes precise image framing problematic, Seems to clip highlights a bit more than competition
  • Small pentamirror viewfinder. Very limited burst shooting in Raw mode. Video autofocus is choppy with non-STM lenses
  • Can feel a little plasticky in places; Not suited to action photography with limited AF points for tracking and a small buffer
  • Slow 'hybrid AF' performance in live view and video modes (compared to mirrorless competition), Slightly higher noise levels than its peers, Default dynamic range lags a bit behind its peers, Using flash with Auto ISO enabled results in ISO 400 even in bright light conditions, Cannot configure common live view and movie mode options independently, AF illuminator integrated into flash (must have
