https://m.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-sl2-eos-200d-review Hi, have a look at the review, they mention the differences on the first page. I wanted something small, so I went with the 100D and personally would choose the 200D over the 800D because for me, size and weight is the most important aspect and I'm a novice. The weight and size is important to me because it means I will be more likely to use the camera and carry it around. Whereas something bigger (more expensive) feels like more of a hassle / requires an occasion / is less "grab and go". The 100D was the "current model" for 5 years or so. If you're getting started, you could get the 200D, then if you find you're using it a lot, want more, learnt a lot, then you'll be in a better position to judge which camera you want to upgrade to and you'll likely get a decent resale value on the 200D. It's just up to you to decide which features you find important. You could try them out in a shop to get a feel for the size / weight.
Thanks again endothecat, want to go down the DSLR route as once I get going I think it's something that I will really get into. Would you recommend this 200d over the 800d?
I've had the 100D for 4 years and really like it. The question is, do you want access to the vast catalogue of lenses & accessories (new and second hand) and learn about how to use an SLR? If the answer is no, and you just want a small good quality camera, then maybe worth looking at bridge cameras or CSC which will be smaller still, probably pricier but decent picture quality as well.
Thanks endothecat, looking for my first DSLR and have been looking at the 200D (like the size), would anyone recommend it or not....
It won't qualify. When sold by Amazon with the lens it's £503.
