Canon released their new T5, or 1200D if you do not live in the US, to little fanfare. Why? Because it is a camera aimed at beginners to photography and DSLRs. It is meant to be an inexpensive option for beginners to learn the ropes on, but is it really the best option for those beginners?

Kai, and the team over at DigitalRev, just released their hands-on review for the Canon T5, and they aim to answer that very question. Check it out below:

As you can see, while the guys over at DigitalRev agree that the T5 is in fact pretty good at what it is meant to be good at, there is a better option out there for beginners. That camera is the Canon SL1, also known as the 100D in the rest of the world.

What are your thoughts on the T5? Do you agree with us and DigitalRev that there are simple better options out there for beginners, or do you see it as a good option? Leave a comment below to join the discussion.
