Although it's been in the rumor mills for a long time, it looks like it's here at last:
Apparently Canon hasn't been doing so well with its "mirrorless fighter," the small SL1 body. (I link to the one with the kit lens because it's the exact same price as the body alone.) Too bad, because I actually really like the SL1. I got to play with one recently. I could live with it. Bet Canon could clear their SL1 inventory more quickly if they offered kits with this new 24mm and the 40mm pancake. That's an outfit.
It's amazing that it took ~15 years for a Canikon APS-C DSLR to replicate the concept of a genuinely small SLR body (think Olympus OM-1/2/3/4 or Pentax ME/MX) with a properly matched, fully-functional semi-wide pancake prime. And yeah, kinda pathetic, too. (Sorry.)
