Better! Of course, luddites would disagree. :-)

It's better because of faster flash sync. Yes, in my biz. flash is a
necessary evil sometimes.

Better because it's in production. Better because the meter is more
flexible, and accurate and sensitive ( I think it is anyway, anybody know
for sure?). 

The viewfinder is a study in ergonomics. You can see the frame count, and
all relevant info.

Lots of reasons. I would never consider an SL or SL2.

Oh yeah, all current lenses work on it.
