With the only real difference over the Rebel T6 / 1300D being the upgrade of the sensor from 18MP to 24.1MP, the EOS Rebel T7 / EOS 2000D is a hard camera to get excited about. 

It's pitted directly against our current favorite entry-level DSLR, the Nikon D3500, and doesn't offer anything to recommend it over that camera. 

Rather than designing the camera to a series of budgetary requirements, Canon could have leapfrogged Nikon by adding a few extra features to the Rebel T7 / 2000D. By simply offering an improved and up-to-date AF system (including Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF) and touchscreen control, along with a beginner-friendly graphical interface, Canon could have made the EOS Rebel T7 / EOS 2000D a much more appealing entry-level DSLR.
