Modest 3.7fps shooting and small RAW buffer
Screen fixed in position
Unlike several rivals
Average 9-point AF system and viewfinder
Compelling rivals if you don't care for 1080p movies.
Video recording is not as intuitive as with a dedicated camcorder. Frames-per-second capture is slower than the competition.
Auto Lighting Optimizer's effect is subtle to the point of being unnoticeable
No rear control dial (as found on higher-end Canon bodies)
Entry-level ergonomics won't suit everyone (the EOS 50D and 7D just feel nicer)
No in-camera raw conversion option
Slightly soft JPEG output at default settings (but this is far from unusual)
Chroma noise takes a fairly big chunk out of resolution at ISO 12
AF Assist lamp not on body
Kit lens is weak
Irritating control layout for video capture.
A touch too expensive
JPEGs are soft at default settings
Good lenses needed for best results
Redeye a problem
No way to remove it in playback mode
Small right hand grip not for everyone
LCD outdoor visibility could be better
Sluggish contrast detect autofocus in live view
Continuous shooting mode could be better
Very basic playback mode
Wireless flash control would've been nice
Lack of quick control wheel (you have to get Canon's 7D or a higher model to have one). Bothersome autofocus assist flash. Build quality not as robust as feature set.
Relatively expensive for entry level camera kit
Light plastic feel is a turn off for some photographers
Light plastic feel
Expensive for entry level camera kit
Smaller form size
Almost too light
Autofocus doesn't work in Movie mode
Relatively slow burst mode
Video controls could be easier to use
