EOS Rebel T5 is Canon's cheapest DSLR, priced at $550 with 18-55mm lens

If you're on a tight budget and looking to buy a DSLR, we might suggest you consider a mirrorless camera instead. But if you're dead set on building out your EOS lens collection, Canon's Rebel T5 is at least a more capable choice than its predecessor, the 2011-era T3. This year's model includes an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, a DIGIC 4 processor, a sensitivity range of ISO 100-12,800 and 1080/30p video capture. There's also a 9-point AF system and 3 frames-per-second continuous shooting -- generally not much to write home about, but as a starter cam it'll do just fine. The T3i will remain for sale, and can be had for $509 including a lens over at Amazon. The T5, for its part, is set to retail for $550 including an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens, or $450 for the body only. Expect to see it in stores next month.

Update: Canon has opted to not offer the T5 without a lens, so your only option is to purchase the kit for $550.
