Letsgodigital has some Rebel SL1/EOS 100D sample pics for you to check. DxOmark preview about the the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR, the Canon EOS SL1/EOS100D, can be read here. Hands-on at PopPhoto. Another preview at Camera Lab, they write:

Despite the reduction in size and weight, the EOS SL1 / 100D still feels like a solid camera with similar construction and toughness to Canon’s other consumer DSLRs. The body is built from aluminium alloy and polycarbonate resin with carbon and glass fiber. The grip is squashed down compared to earlier Canon DSLRs with a repositioned shutter release as a result, but it’s still comparable to the experience with most mirror-less cameras

Pocket-lint has a good hands-on on the Rebel SL1/EOS 100D, called a “clever engineering project”. Quoting:

The 100D’s cut-back size has been achieved by a number of processes: Canon’s totally redesigned the shutter mechanism, as well as the sensor module which, despite offering the same exposed APS-C area, is considerably smaller thanks to shrinking down its surrounding components – the sensor module has also been made thinner. […]

There’s a 9-point autofocus system with one cross-type sensor […] that’s super fast in operation and gives confirmatory, light-up feedback in the optical viewfinder. The diamond arrangement of the focus points covers a decent portion of the 95 per cent field-of-view 0.87x magnification finder – there’s little compromise here in terms of size either.
