In a departure from its typical Rebel design, Canon adds a slightly more upscale model to the line that inherits some design updates from higher-end EOS models. And that's on top of the significant updates Canon made to both of its midrange consumer dSLRs.

It's a minor update over the D7100 -- some improved processing for better continuous-shooting performance and built-in Wi-Fi, plus a few other tweaks. But the D7100 and its predecessor are excellent cameras, so we expect the same of this one.

Cramming it with its most current technologies, Olympus makes the E-M5 Mark II sound very attractive to photographers looking for a camera more advanced than a point and shoot but smaller than a dSLR.

Price: $1,100, £900 (est.), AU$1,200

While it's not a particularly notable update -- the addition of a touchscreen is nice -- Nikon's entry-level dSLRs are generally well-performing crowd pleasers.

Price: $1,000, £720 (est.), AU$1,100 (est.). With 18-55mm VR II lens

Expected ship: February 2015
