    100D win.. You can test it vs the 5DmkIII. Absolutely amazing the quality of that small camera.. I’ve used it vs 70D, 7D and 5DmkIII. The 100D win in video conditions “thanks hybrid af 2” , 100D whitebalance and disturb with high iso.. His sensor is incredible.. disturb will be visible using iso to 12800. Cool pictures and cool videos in low light condition.. I think 100D is a small camera with great potential.. Really awesome. I like it, and ill vote 100D vs that small Nikon 😉

    btw: there is some SL1 that work good, there is some SL1 that work bad….
    Mine is perfect. I hope the model that you tested was a good model.
