Slight correction to this. The two versions are the regular 18-55 and the 18-135 STM. So for the price difference (which is closer to $250), you get more range and the STM function.

I just ordered the T4i a couple of days ago. It was between that and the 60D. But for me, the slight advantages the 60D held weren't enough to justify the decision to get one.

Just some additional food for thought here: Within the last year, Canon rolled out updates to the Rebel series and full-frame 5D, and introduced the 6D, all with the same basic underlying technology upgrades (my hunch is the 6D replaces the 7D). They've also announced their first mirrorless camera, which will share this technology. This is sheer speculation on my part, but I have to think that sometime within the next 6-9 months, we'll be hearing about the 60D's replacement, and I have to think that will come sooner rather than later. My point being, I've got a hunch the 60D will be going away soon.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the T4i. I prefer the lighter weight and I have small hands so it makes sense for me. I really wish it had an AV dial although maybe the touch screen will be faster than the set up on the T3i. I also wish they made it a little more weather resistant, but all in all it seems like the better choice for me. Do you notice any problems seeing the touch screen in bright sunlight?

I don't recall having any problems with the visibility of the screen in sunlight.

Went and exchanged the T3i for a T4i and so far so good! Little more to learn on this camera, but so far I've been able to get some nice shots just playing around with it at home.
