If you go back through the Canon’s release timing from the 10D/ 300D

p.s.

If u can wait 6 years for upgrading ur camera i think u can also save money for a full frame body in the same time :)
But investing in a full-frame body (which on itself costs 3x as much as a new rebel WITH kitlens) would be silly without investing in glass (first?), also. That makes it quite a bit more pricy. It has to be a very big hobby for you to want to spend that much money. A rebel upgrade with 5 or 6 years in between remains very worthwhile if you're on a budget for whatever reason. Also, better to upgrade to a new rebel with good glass than to get a full-frame body without any glass.

I've never owned a Nikon product, but lately I've been eying a few of there cams. The d7000 is one that interests me since its similar to the canon 7d, and can be found for less.

The Nikon D7000 in my personal opinion is nowhere near a good a camera as the 7D . In manual mode, all modern cameras are as roughly as good.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but shouldn't the 7D be compared to the Nikon D300s and not the D7000? The Nikon D7000 competes with the Canon 60D.

Nikon made an interesting turn with the D7000.  The D7000 knocked off the D90, so I would say the D7000 would sit somewhere between the 60D and the 7D. 

That is just an opinion, others may differ and I would like to hear other viewpoints.

Back to the topic of the thread, yes, I am sad that the T4i was not announced.  Now I am looking at the T3i vs the D5100.  Perhaps just mentioning a Nikon camera is what is getting me bad karma points.  I'm sorry, I'm just shopping right now and it would be silly not to look at the competition. 

I just wish I knew what Canon was doing with the T4i!

If you in the unique position to choose your brand because you don't already have Canon gear lying around: Do yourself a favor and don't look at body features alone, but think about lenses in the mid- to long term. You'll have your favorite lenses much longer than the first body.

If you are into photography, you probably will invest in a couple of quality lenses sooner or later, so think about: What do/would you like to shoot? Do you want to migrate to Canon full frame or Nikon fx anytime? What Canon or Nikon lenses are available for this choice? Of course you always sell your gear if you got it wrong, but thinking ahead imho does save some trouble.
