The T3i looks really nice.
However I just got my T1i a few months ago and still playing with it, it's more than sufficient for now
Planning on getting some EF lenses and maybe get something like 7D in two years or so

I'm still sticking with my original upgrade path:

Keep my 50D, get an 85mm f/1.8, be happy

Although I do admit, "nabbing someone's t2i for cheap to play around with video" has now popped up on my radar.

I really want a lens with short focal length and large aperture right now. I got the EF 50mm f/1.8 lens, it's pretty basic but works great for me, only problem is that I need something with shorter focal length to picture my pet hamsters

Why I picked up my 28mm f/1.8 The 50mm is a great lens, but too long for indoors use. The 28mm is perfect for me. If it helps, I can frame my entire 24" monitor at just three feet away.

It costs a bit more than the 50mm f/1.4, but after getting the lens, I have no regrets! I bought mine used for $420 with hood on POTN.

I was actually looking at the 28mm f/1.8 on Canon's website a few days ago, you got photos that you took with it? And other lens that you would recommend in the same price range?

I'm considering selling my Canon EF-S 55-250mm 4-5.6 IS lens and get the 28mm f/1.8 or something similar. I just don't use the EF-S 55-250mm one very much, please I have an old school EF 70-210mm f/4 lens that was made in Japan in like 1980s and heavy as hell lol(it felt way more sturdy then the new EF-S 55-250mm )

here you go.

The ones of my Nikon lens is taken by the Canon 28mm. I think I was 6-8 inches away from the lens taking these shots. It's a bit soft wide open, but stop it down to f/2.8 and it's pretty sharp. With the focal length and USM, I definitely think it's a great lens to have.

As for the 55-250mm, you can probably get $160-$180 used for it, assuming the glass is in good condition

beyond the 28mm f/1.8, Canon also makes the 28mm f/2.8, but the optics aren't as great and lack of USM is a deal breaker for me.

And wow, so OT!

Careful about upgrade fever guys. Neither of these new Rebels are a quantum leap over the previous batch, or even the ones before that. Save your money for glass.

The 200-400 looks very interesting. I'm assuming it will cost a small fortune.

So, what's so good about the T3i that people should upgrade?

I think it's more for new DSLR buyers than current ones. Although truthfully, I think that T3i sounds a bit like a wash.

The T3 does sound good though, and if they're willing to drop the price by $100, it'd make a killing in the basic entry level market.
