Since switching from Sony to Canon, I couldn’t be happier. I now see why so many people choose Canon over many other camera brands. I love the Canon camera and have met so many great people who share my enthusiasm. I own the Canon 70D and take most of the photos you see on this website with it. I just recently purchased a 24 mm 2.8 prime lens to help me take better low light photos. I also own the Canon kit lens (18-55), and 50 mm 1.8 (Nifty Fifty), the 18-135 and the 70-300 lens.
When I purchased the Canon 70D I paid a lot for it, $1,100 for just the body alone. I did a lot of research but really didn’t look too closely at the EOS Rebel series. I wish I had now. I could have saved myself a lot of money. The Rebel T5i is literally half the price of my 70D with almost all of the same features. The Rebel series is the consumer-level DSLR cameras but they work just as great as the more professional D Series (6D, 7D, 60D, 70D). I recently went to Best Buy to check the ESOL Rebel T5i because I knew I was going to be writing this article. The difference in weight is huge! My Canon 70D body alone weighs about 2 lbs and then you add on lens and it’s super heavy. The Rebel is lighter and it has almost all of the features included in the 70D. The only thing it doesn’t have that my 70D offers is the Wi-Fi feature, which you can get around by purchasing a Wi-Fi enabled SD card.
Just so you know, we were compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card for writing this post. Our personal experience with Canon is our own. The facts about the camera and the sale info came from Best Buy.
The Canon EOS Rebel T5i is a highly reviewed and rated camera. Take a look at the reviews and you will see that folks are super happy with the T5i. The Rebel series is for the more serious photographer. It is a true DSLR camera and not a point and shoot camera. If you are ready to step up to the next level and learn how to take better photos, then the Canon EOS Rebel T5i is a great camera I highly suggest you take a look at.
