Wait for the t9i I hear it will have a shrink ray so you can macro anything.

Can't decide whether to wait or go for t4i... could the t5i be that much better? in noise dont care for more resolution.

Apologies for people not giving you advice you can use (except a few):

If you are a pro and make money and you are losing money without a body: T4i
If you are a hobbyist who can wait 3 months and does not care to pay early adopter price: T5i

The T5i has to be a bit better. I played with a Friend's T4i, it is so much better than a T2i in terms of noise that one can only think the T5i will also have a bit of improvement in the area. Also by March, you will know if it is worth buying over the t4i or not.

Just some friendly advice: Wait for reviews and comparisons to the T4i.

Wait if you can. You have not given us any background about what camera you have now, what you shoot and what shots are you unable to take so the advise will be tristated - buy T4i, wait for T5i or something else that you may not be able to use. A question without context gets answers outside of your context...

Go with 6D for better higher ISO.
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II

The t4i is excellent. It just came out in June, so how long will  you have to wait for a "T5i".

After a month w/it, it's met my expectations re: Image quality, and exceeded my expectations re: Handling.

As far as the 60D vs t4i, given the prices are almost the same, go to a store and handle each one. The T4i is ligher, smaller, has a touch screen and very quiet fast focusing.  You miss the rear dial and some other settings.  Shooting speed about the same.   Consider the T4i +18-135 STM kit if you can get a good deal under 900.00 for the kit. Enjoy it.

Absolutely true but I wonder though are we not entering a time where Canon are about to change their production line to a 0.18 micron fabrication process and so the question ‘should I wait’ will become very valid, I’m thinking more 7D than rebel admittedly.


What do you mean? 180nm just means you will get smaller pixels ( i think i heard about 100 MP on FF?). The size of pixels in current Canon dslr sensors is a lot bigger. In case of the 650D: 4300nm. That means 20 times smaller pixels, huge picture files, low frame rates, and very poor high-iso performance. I don't know why you want that 180nm fabrication process ;).


He means Fabrication process, not pixel width of 180nm.

Meaning less space is taken up by electronics and more space allotted to "larger" photodiodes.


Thank you

T5i will probably have a brand new sensor. Might be worth waiting for,

Wait for the t9i I hear it will have a shrink ray so you can macro anything.

I heard that the T7i might be the return of APS-H sensor and shoot 12FPS.

The T10i will be FF and will shoot @ 24fps in it's only mode - CINEMA - from which you can later extract RAW stills from using the supplied software

Still won't be as good as the D800.

Just wait for the T5i's announcement if you do not need it urgently. If it's a brand new 24 MP sensor (hopefully featuring the new 0.18 fabrication process), then the imaging sensor alone is worth the wait. If it's the same old same old 18 MP sensor, then the price of T4i will have fallen further by then.

I was in the same position as you last spring when the rumors of the T4i were flying. I had bought a T3i in a nice two lens bundle at Costco and thought why not wait and see how they improved the T4i since it was supposed to be released at any time.

First of all, it seemed to take forever for the release. Then, I felt compelled to read all the reviews to see if the new camera was worthy of all my barely contained patience. Although some thought the T3i had better IQ, and the new autofocus wasn't quite living up to the hype, most of the reviews were positive, especially about the feared touchscreen.

One thing most people were really disappointed in, though, was the T4i used basically the same sensor (with the tweak for AF) as the T3i and 60D. Most people, including myself, hoped we'd get something more along the lines of the sensor in the Nikon 5200.

Now, I gotta believe the new T5i, whenever it finally does come out, will have a new sensor. It HAS to ;). The thing is, will it live up the the build up of hype? Gotta wait till someone has one.

If you can wait, I would. If the new sensor is a big, or medium improvement, and Canon didn't take away any great features from the T4i, you'll be glad you waited. If not, pick up the T4i cheaper.

Like others have said, it depends on your current situation. Do you have a camera now? If not, then buy it now. There is always something better around the corner. Meanwhile, you are missing pictures.

If you DO have a camera now (with adequate IQ), do you really need to upgrade? And if you do, how soon?

A good 5D or 5D2 will be better.  Couple it with a 50mm or 40mm and a cheap external flash and you're set.
