In this review, we will be comparing SL3 and SL2, two Entry-Level DSLR cameras by Canon. Canon SL3 was introduced to market in April 2019 and Canon SL2 was launched in June 2017. There is 21 months difference between SL3 and SL2 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger SL3, especially in sensor tech.

with an overall score of 74 and Canon SL2 is ranked #7
with an overall score of 73.
