The T4i is the best buy out of them all if you know you'll be using the features and make it worth the buy price. This is unless you get a great deal on a gently used T3i then I'd hop on that.

I'd stick in the used market and make the budget stretch drum tight. smile.gif

hmm to my knowledge the biggest difference between them is that the t4i has 9 cross type focus points? I have a t3 like I said and want to upgrade from that however I dont really want to go full frame body due to the size of the body it self. I would like to be able to take it in my back pack and go.

Yes, the T4i has a better AF system than its predecessors. Any of the 5D series cameras really aren't all that much larger than a Rebel. I really think you should look at a 5D, especially since you have the 85L. Seems like a waste to use that lens on a Rebel, or any crop body for that matter.

We talking like 5D Mark III or Mark II ? they are both about 20% larger and twice as heavy :/ Also not to mention the price lol. The 85L is being wasted on the camera a little but as much as I want to take the jump to full frame I just dont see me even needing it :/ I dont take professional stuff just some portraits and things like this.

If portraits are your thing and you don't want to spend much, try to find a 5D classic in nice condition.

There's an appreciable difference there.

Ohh this is a cool site! I have the T3 currently so it is even a slight bit smaller according to what they show. But it is pretty clear the size difference between the two when you show it like this and I have used a multiple Mark III's and just find them so big. Rep+ for finding this site going to be really useful for me, also to ljason8eg for the help thumb.gif

Just got myself an IPS monitor from BestBuy today for $160... We'll see how much this improves things.

True, but it's mainly nice not having to deal with the wacky viewing angles of the TN panel in my laptop.

So far I'm enjoying the monitor. I just used the Windows calibration tool to try to make the colors a bit better. Doesn't quite match my laptop (which has pretty good color it seems) but I can probably futz it a bit more to get it close.

Overall, for $160 I can't complain.
