Well the T2i doesn't have anything wrong with except making annoying noises when shaken..something is loose, I bet someone dropped it, but it still functioned, not sure of how thorough Canons refurbished reps check the cameras, POTN makes it seem better than it really is

But we will see how it holds up for the next 90 days.

I'd call up Canon ASAP to get that checked out. There shouldn't be any sort of rattling inside.

Yeah, don't settle for that. Nothing should rattle inside there, refurbished or not.

No. The D90 and D7000 would be wasted money. No offense but it's apparent that you don't have much, if any, photographic experience and all the features that those higher end bodies would only serve to confuse you.

Get a D3100 or XSi and learn, then decide if it's something you want to invest in.

What about the in-body AF motor? The D7k is the cheapest model with one since the D90 is now EoL.

Although personally my vote is for the D3100 or 1100D, like yours is.

What types of usage do you expect to have with the camera? Are you REALLY going to use older, non AF-S lenses so that you'll need the AF motor? Having extra functionality is only useful if you're going to use it.
That said, what's your photography level? DSLRs age fast, so you might be better off purchasing a cheaper one now (D3100) and upgrading later, when you've learned the trade and can take advantage of the D7000/D90 extra features.

As far as Canon vs. Nikon goes, like others said: feel them. That's the reason I prefer Nikons - they just feel much better in hand. Canons just feel cheap.

I have a D3100, and love it for the lightness, and small size which fits comfortable in hand. You'll know what I mean if you carry one around all day long being a tourist and whatnot. The D90 was just too big for me, as D7000 probably would've been.

Hope this helps.

IMHO, I'd go for the D90, One thing to look for is parts and lens and stuff, availability of accessories and of course, Features, The D90 is one great camera, handled with one before, Although Video Capturing needs work (Overheats and needs cooldown) It takes great Pictures with the right lens kit and setting, its a beast of the camera.

My first Camera is a Nikon, D40, Great little thing, What it lacks in Megapixels, it makes up for Really good pictures.

1. Meh, not sure which two you're comparing. Canon has bodies that feel both cheap and great, just as Nikon does. There is no one standard "Canon" template.

2. You get used to it. I thought the same thing when I got my 50D moving up from my Rebel XTi/400D, but I got used to it. Now I can carry my camera all day without any issues with the weight. A good strap definitely does help though, and I swear by my Crumpler Industry Disgrace.
