Well it's about time. Good to finally see Canon's base level mirrorless ILC approach the price points of their base level DSLRs. When Canon has a bunch of sub $500 models on the shelves of every Best Buy and Walmart across the globe, that trickles up and makes it better for those of us who want and need more advanced ILCs.
