Now second banana in Canon APS-C models, it offers near class-leading image quality, a great build, and very speedy shooting—but no video. For that, you’ll need to move up to a 7D—or down to a Rebel T2i.

Standout Spec: 6.3-fps burst rate still quite good in this class—but no longer the fastest of the fast.
