Our good friends over at Popular Photography got their hands on the world's smallest and lightest DSLR, the Canon SL1, and found it quite nice! It's about the size of a mirrorless camera, but it has a mirror, which will make its autofocus faster and more accurate, and also gives you access to the entire range of Canon-compatible lenses. It's essentially a shrunken T4i, Canon's excellent entry-level DSLR from last year. We've spoken before about how DSLRs aren't for everyone--and the SL1 still isn't nearly pocket-sized, though it's closer than any other of its kind. Anyway, go check out the hands-on at Pop Photo.
