The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Canon's entry-level cameras have always been solid contenders in the DSLR market but, while the new T5 maintains the same level of quality, previous generation cameras still on sale offer better performance for a lower price.

The interface on Canon cameras is often touted for being very user friendly and intuitive. That hasn't changed with the T5, which Digital Trends finds "very easy to use." However, this price point means Canon made some compromises with the body in trading metal for plastic, and The Digital Picture says that while the T5 is just "not as well built" as higher-end counterparts, it still has "a solid, high quality feel." For capturing photos the T5 neither excels nor falls short, with TrustedReviews saying "the images are exceptionally clean."

If the T5 had been released alongside the T5i the extra features on the T5i wouldn't have just justified purchasing it over the less expensive T5. But now, a price drop or two has leveled that playing field, making the more fully-featured T5i a better investment over the stripped down T5.
