I'm thinking on getting a second body for my EOS-3 and I'm considering the two mentioned bodies. I know the specs of both and the rebel will be enough for what and about $100 cheaper. I'm interested on the Elan mainly due to the "whisper drive" and the rebel because is smaller and lighter. Is it the Elan that more silent than the rebel? I know both will be an improvement from my eos-3; noise, size and weight wise.
