The popular T5i/700D gets two successors with significantly updated features.
An overall excellent camera, but one that fails to capture the best-in-class prize for image quality.
If you're looking for an easy and (relatively) affordable entry point into home automation, then SmartThings makes a lot of sense.
Is this impressive bulb bright enough to outshine its predecessor?
Although pricey, the 2013 BMW 135is is an incredibly fun little coupe for the driving enthusiast, yet remains well-mannered enough for an everyday commute.
While the Canon EOS Rebel T5i is -- almost literally -- the same solid camera as its predecessor, it's starting to lag frustratingly behind the competition in some ways.
A fine camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i's more expensive 18-135mm STM kit (or body with another STM lens) is the only version that merits an unqualified recommendation. You can probably find better alternatives if you just want a sub-$1,000 dSLR for still photography.
A good option if you're looking for something fast with a viewfinder and tilting LCD, the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 is a solid but not outstanding sub-$800 dSLR-style camera.
The Sony Alpha SLT-A77V is an excellent, well-designed camera for deep-pocketed amateurs; it nevertheless has a few limitations that may make it impractical for professionals.
For the money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice for dSLR videographers--though the cheaper T2i can still suffice if you don't need the articulated LCD--and it's a solid choice for creative still shooters. But though the image quality and general shooting performance are top-notch, if you're upgrading to capture sports, kids, or pets, the T3i may not be able to keep up.
