    The Rebel series has always been known as the Kiss series in Japan so the naming convention here is nothing new.

    What's interesting is that it is probably a Canon pushing back at mu43 and other mirrorless systems. There's another thread right now talking about the advantages of mu43 being a smaller system, which is somewhat negated by a very small DSLR. What they also need to do is make smaller lenses as well. APS-C lenses could be smaller if they were redesigned.

    Not sure how well it will work out for Canon, but Sony's SLT line was originally about the same size as the GH line. It was the lenses that made it a bit larger and heavier.
