The 2Ti body is $560 at Amazon, where as the T3i body is only $624. For the extra $64, I'd rather just get the newer model if I had to buy it today. But I'm really hoping to wait as long as I can, at least try and push it to mid April to see if there are any announcements. I also dont know about the pricing. If the T4i kit is priced at $1000 for example, then I would definitely buy the T3i, as this will be my first DSLR, and I have a lot to learn before blowing big bucks. But I would be seriously bummed if I bought the T3i for $624, then a month later, the T4i is selling for $700 for example. I would rather get the T4i at that price because of the better sensor and silent auto focus. The kit lens sounds sweet too. I have to buy a camera by the end of April. THOUGHTS?!
