Postby Lindsey » Sat May 03, 2008 5:48 pm

Anyone have it? Its the new one that recently came out... it is pricey! 8O But seems very nice... I'm considering upgrading in a couple months (I have the XTi) but want to know if anyone has one or has tested it?

hmmm, I just have the plain boring Rebel :wink:

what are the new features, just more megapixels? I keep reading that anything over 8mp is just 'fluff', unless you are blowing things up to giant poster size :dunno: However, I would love an IS lens!!!

Hmmm other than being 12.2 mp (which I don't care for anything over 10 because I am not going to be blowing pics up to life size anytime soon) it seems they pulled some features from the 40d. I think at that price, we're still going with the 40d. Looks like they made some great upgrades though. Not sure though if it would be unnecessary if you were only using it for shooting things around the houses or the kids ect. I think it's more geared to the amateur wanting to turn pro who can't afford the pro cameras. SO if you want to get it, maybe wait for the price drop :dunno: Otherwise, it looks pretty spiffy.

Yeah, thanks you all. I was just curious. It looks cool but its really expensive. I will probably wait until the price drops a lot
