B&H has informed me that the T3i is in stock and ready to ship.

Buy a T3i from B&H w/18-55 II for $899

Although I had the same thought, at least, I'll give a comparison of prices.

The T3i body only is $799, with 18-55mm IS II Kit lens $899

The 60D body only is $899, I did not see a Canon kit with the 18-55mm IS, so there is no equivalent.

The 60D dropped in price since it has came out, expect the T3i to drop, or the 60d to rise.

more likely is the 600d will drop as they originally dropped the price of the 60d as it couldn't go toe to toe with the d7000 in terms of price.

A new Rebel comes out every year. If you try to keep current, after three years you could have bought a 5DII (almost), which is only replaced every three years. Buy the 5D series, it's a better deal, and when you upgrade, your old camera still has value used, so the upgrade cost is maybe $1200 every three years.

As I often say, I absolute love my 5D MK II, but a person with a good eye can certainly take a image with even a point and shoot that will exceed the most expensive camera in the hands of a person like me who just loves technology and tools.

Here is one from my non photographer wife with her Canon 720 IS.  She just wants to point and shoot, but she sometimes finds great scenes.

Maybe someone who finds the 60D just a tad too heavy?

Amazon in Germany says they can ship the 600D 18-55 kit from 4th March; no date for the 18-135 kit and body only.

By the time you put a lens etc on it's about 2.5 vs 2.8 lbs. If Canon had a pancake lens I could possibly see an advantage for compact size/weight in a T3i package.

Mine too, as she says "she points and I shoot". Although she really likes the S90 we picked up last year.

Tell your wife 'nice capture'...

Every camera has it's advantages, and you can get great images with almost any camera. But you'll get better images more often, and in a wider range of conditions, with a DSLR.

She caught a very nice moment!

It depends what you mean by better images.  Better content, or a sharper image.  Content is what makes a image valuable.  Technical sharpness is very nice, but content is what sells a image.

Got to hold the New T3i at my local camera shop here in Charlotte NC.  While the Back of the camera has changed with the Flip out display.  The graphic Interface seem's more cluttered than with the T2i.
Did not get to test the video.  But  For the moment. I will stick with the T2i.  and get a 7D
