B&H has the Canon Rebel SL1 with the popular EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens in a kit for $598 (reg. $800). The deal includes a free SanDisk 16GB Class 10 SDHC card and a camera bag, along with 2% rewards. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

I personally own the SL1 and this is the lens that stays on the camera. It is a great compact kit.

New Entry-Level Canon DSLR Coming to CP+

Canon Rebel SL1-5

The latest rumors suggest that the next Canon DSLR coming to us will be an entry-level model situated below the Canon Rebel SL1 and will be showcased at CP+ next month.

Recall that the Rebel SL1 was announced in March 2013 and turned out to be a fantastic little camera. I liked it so much that I bought one for myself. It is a great camera to carry when paired with the EF 40mm f/2.8 ST lens.

I look forward to seeing if Canon will continue this new compact line, or if this will be more like an update to the very low-end Rebel T3.
