Canon EOS 100D vs. Canon EOS 700D
As mentioned before the Canon EOS 100D has a similar sensor to the EOS 700D and several others in the firm’s range. For all that it performs similarly. As well as achieving the same Color Depth and DR score.
Canon EOS 100D vs. Sony SLT-A37 vs. Nikon D3200
When compared with rival entry-level DSLRs, the tiny EOS 100D looks like it’s well behind, especially in DR where it’s -1.9 stops behind the Nikon D3200 and -1.3 stops behind the Sony SLT-A37. A similar story can be said for Color Depth, where the Canon is -1.4 stops behind the Nikon and 1 stop behind the Sony at base ISO, though in fairness, in good lighting and with careful exposure none of this will be really noticeable. Also bear in mind, with higher ISOs, the differences between them become less noticeable anyway.
Canon EOS 100D vs. Canon EOS M vs. Panasonic G5
In comparison with the firm’s mirrorless body, the 18-Mpix EOS M, we can see the Canon EOS 100D performs identically for intents and purposes, while even matching the similarly priced yet more pixel dense 16-Mpix MFT format Panasonic Lumix DMC G5.

To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
Canon took the standard Rebel and whittled it into a smaller body, removing only a few features, while adding one very important one: improved live view autofocus. The result is a mature camera for the family photographer that's not a burden to bring along, but which can also serve as a reliable, lightweight backup for a more knowledgeable photographer. Those familiar with Canon SLRs will feel right at home, but those with smaller hands won't feel left out or intimidated. For amateurs, Canon still includes full auto modes as well as Creative Auto mode for simple, jargon-less access to changes like color mode and background blur. Experienced photographers will be able to pick up the Canon SL1 and still feel at home, with a full set of manual and semi-auto modes.
