Which Canon Bodies Complement Each Other?

Sometimes you ask yourself whether to keep an older body as spare body when you buy a new one, or you intent do by a second body. Naturally the same body is the perfect match. However, you may want to look for a budget (used) body as spare one.

It is advantageous when both have the same look and feel with respect to the menu structure, the buttons etc. Canon is quite good at that. However, Canon does badly when it comes to the compatibility of Batteries. The same mount is important too, so that you can use all lenses on both bodies. And have a look at the remote control curt (it is the plug that is different) and the memory cards.

This table should provide you with an overview making it easy to identify the very model that suits best your existing one.
