The Canon SL1 is impossible to compare to the rest of the Canon lineup because it’s a very specialized body, optimized for size. It’s tiny, offering mirrorless portability with the flexibility of a DSLR. If you want the smallest Canon DSLR you can buy, the SL1 is the right choice for you. If you want the size benefits of mirrorless cameras with the Canon lens selection, buy the SL1. If carrying a few extra ounces and inches isn’t a big deal, you should choose one of the other cameras.
