The new Canon EOS 700D is this years update to the Canon EOS 650D
, which is to be discontinued by Canon. The 700D will sit above the 600D, which will remain on sale and was last years best selling Digital SLR. The 700D introduces a new level of finish, with improved textures and feel, giving the camera a much more premium design and handling, which Canon say should further enhance the durability of the camera.

Introduced with the new Canon EOS 100D and 700D is a new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 STM lens with internal focusing, 25cm close focusing, 4-stop image stabilisation, and manual focus ring. The lens is said to have improved optics over the previous kit lens as shown below:
Priced at £619 RRP body only, the new 700D is introduced with a much lower RRP than the 650D
, which was originally announced less than a year ago, with an RRP of £699. While the specifications of the 700D is virtually identical to the 650D
it replaces, the new design and handling is a welcome update, and it's perhaps the combination of the new 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM kit zoom lens that will be the most apealling aspect of this camera, as this should provide improved image quality. It will be available with the Canon EOS 700D as a kit for an RRP of £749.
Additional upgrades to the 700D over the 650D, is improved live view with a 60fps refresh speed compared to 30fps on the 650D, as well as additional view options for grid display and aspect ratio.
