Ok, sorry. I'm going to be "that" guy, and swoop in on the photography board from out of the blue and ask the ol' "which camera is better" question. Hopefully my post shows I've at least done a little research on the question, first. My current camera is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. This is my second Canon Rebel, upgrading to digital from an EOS Rebel II. I'm feeling the need to upgrade to something more current, but don't know whether to stick with the Canon brand or look at others. I've got a bit of an investment in lenses and other accessories, albeit some of them are dated and seldom used. The two lenses that came with the kits have been superseded by newer lens purchases, for example. With the exception of a pop-up flash that sometimes needs a little assistance opening, I've never had any issues with either of my Canons. So I'm not necessarily looking to change for the sake of change. I'm just wondering if I'm missing out on a truly great camera by only looking at a within-brand replacement. For a little more background, I use the camera mostly on vacations and for family events. Really love taking pictures at Disney. I'm far from a professional and probably not even up to the bar of a true enthusiast. I do rate myself above a typical point and shooter, though. For additional insight into the Canon investment, here's everything currently in my camera bag. Digital Rebel XT (DS126071) Lenses Canon EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 II w/ Canon Circular PL-C (my workhorse lens) Canon EF 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 IS USM w/ Sunpak ultraviolet (another lens I get a lot of use out of) Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8 II (my "dark ride and fireworks" lens) Seldom used lenses Canon EF80-200mm 1:4-5.6 II Canon EF 35-80mm 1:4-5.6 III w/ Promaster Spectrum 7 1A + C-P.L Promaster Spectrum 7 19-35mm 1:3.5-4.5 w/ Spectrum 7 1A Several other filters Canon UV Haze Tiffen Soft/FX 3 Misc Promaster FTD 5700 flash Extra Battery Multiple 2GB CF Cards Canon RC-1 wireless remote shutter Canon EH-18L semi-hard leather case I was originally thinking about the EOS Rebel T3i -- pretty much a straight upgrade from the entry-level XT. But when comparing it to the EOS 60D on snapsort.com, the 60D certainly seems to be worth the extra $200 (even if I might never know what to do with all the buttons.) If I stay with Canon, I'm thinking of buying body only. Or would the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens that comes with the kit be enough of an improvement over the non-IS 18-55mm I mostly use now to warrant an additional $200? Really love the semi-hard leather case vice carrying a camera bag in parks. Anyone know if the EH-18L will fit on the 60D? I'm guessing not, since the dimensions are different. One last Canon questions. Read a comment about the T2i that it doesn't include a wireless shutter release option. Can't find specifications to tell me if the same's the case with the T3i or 60D. Will my RC-1 work with either of these cameras? Not a show-stopper, as there's always the timer. Now to the thread title... Canon or not? What makes me nervous about staying with the Canon is that when I compare either of these two Canon cameras (T3i or 60D) to compatible Nikons, the Nikons seem to score much better -- especially in image quality. I also notice the Nikon has a continuous auto-focus during video shooting. Would appreciate any comments on limitations of Canon's manual focus for videos. I'm hoping to have a single camera, and eliminate carrying the Flip Mino HD. I'm not a big fan of the FlipShare software required to use it, or the need to download every hour. Thanks in advance for your help!
