Photographic authority dpreview published their in-depth review of the Canon Rebel T5i (EOS 700D). They are not very happy with the hybrid AF performance in live view and video modes. These is what they liked:

  • Comprehensive touchscreen interface that is intuitive and efficient
  • High image quality with good balance between detail and noise reduction in JPEG output
  • Good subject tracking AF in viewfinder shooting mode (compared to mirrorless competition)
  • 5 fps with ample buffering in JPEG-only mode
  • Very responsive operation, with menu access available even when buffer is full
  • Good-looking video output with manual exposure and audio controls
  • Built-in lens correction for vignetting and CA
  • Effective HDR, lowlight and noise reduction multi-exposure modes
  • Wireless strobe triggering via built-in flash
  • Eye sensor to toggle LCD on and off
  • Built-in stereo mics
  • External microphone socket
  • Updated LCD screen minimizes fingerprint smudges from touchscreen use
  • High quality raw converter in software bundle

The Rebel T5i (EOS 700D) got an overall score of 76% and a silver award. The sample pictures gallery is here.

DxOMark tested 130 lenses to see how well they perform on the Rebel T5i.
