It appears that the upcoming EOS-b, Canon EOS 100D (or whatever it will be called) specs have leaked out via Best Buy’s website. These appear to be legit – although the official camera name may not be listed yet and you can expect this to be pulled soon…
Previous indications of a “smaller DSLR” appear to be legit with the camer weighing a full 5 ounces less than the Canon Rebel T4i and measures 3.6″ (height) x 4.6″ (width) x 2.7″ (depth).
The new EOS model should carry a retail price of $799 with a EF-S 18-55mm IS kit lens, which further confirms the EF-S mount and that this is NOT the follow-up to the EOS M.
