The White Kiss is a Rebel SL1/EOS 100D (with white EF 40mm f/2.8 lens)

White Kiss

So, next murmuring about the upcoming white Canon DSLR (see here too).

According to digicame-info (translated) it will be a white version of the Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D in EU, Kiss X7 in Japan). The fancy news: there will be a white version of the EF 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens (makes sense). The specs (machine translated):

  • Painted white high quality with reduced gloss.
  • Specs are the same as the current Kiss X7 [Rebel Sl1/EOS 100D].
  • Kit lens EF40mm F2.8 STM and F3.5-5.6 IS STM EF-S18-55mm.
  • F2.8 STM EF40mm to become the white of the same color and body.

No new Rebel before X-Mas, but an X-Mas-white Rebel instead. :-)
