Canon T6 Image Quality Comparison: The entry-level Rebel goes head-to-head with its rivals and siblings

A week ago, I published my real-world field test of the Canon T6, the latest entry-level model in the company's long-running Rebel series. At the time, I promised that our image quality comparison and print quality analysis would be forthcoming soon, bringing the overall Canon T6 review one step closer to completion. Well, I have good news, IR fans -- we've just moved one step closer to concluding our review with the addition of both of these sections.

To get a feel for how things stand on the image quality front, I've pitted the Canon T6 against several other cameras in our image quality comparison. Of course, being its predecessor I've included the Canon T5, to get a feel for what (if any) change there has been in image quality between the two cameras. I've also included both of its nearest DSLR rivals at the entry level, the Nikon D3300 and Pentax K-S2. And for good measure, I've also included the Canon T6i to show what's possible if you step just a little further up the Rebel line, as well as the Canon EOS M3 to show what you can expect of a mirrorless camera at the same sensor size.

And while you're at it, you'll also want to give our print quality analysis a read, as well. Here, our production editor and operations manager Dave Pardue printed off countless images shot with the Canon T6 to get a feel for what print sizes are feasible across the sensitivity range.
