You can save even more money and get the T2i instead.  T3i does not offer much more than the T2i plus you can run Magic Lantern on it and open up a new world of settings including time lapse, intervalometer, motion detection, focus trapping, full manual control over video and audio, and some other cool features like 4 fps video mode.

At the rate these discounts and rebates are flowing, you could probobly get a T2i body for half the cost of the T4i now.

I don't like the price point though.  :(.  But  that's not new to canon.  Ok to do that on the pro line but on consumer models you need to make it affordable for soccer moms.

canon rebel t3i also is a great dslr, see the t3i vs t4i comparison, http://t3ivst4i.com, due to the new t4i released, I believe t3i will have a great discount recently.

Well, the first thing I have to say is that camera review site, digitalcamerainfo.com, is a very annoying site. The navigation sucks, and having full-page ad interruptions every time you change to a different page is excessively intrusive and annoying....WOW...  :o

If I can get through the my extreme annoyance, I might have something to say in the near future....but wow...

Real reviews will take a while, so you can as well skip "first impressions" on dubious sites alltogether, they're at lear partly only putting these out to climb in search ranking. To say about real world performance of the new video af & touchpad usability, a reviewer will have to really use the camera body.

What would be interesting to find out is how the sensor performs relative to the old 18MP sensor.  Canon has been very silent about the fact that the sensor is new, aside from the fact that it now incorporates phase detect AF capability.  Either Canon doesn't want to draw any attention to the fact that the IQ has not been improved, or Canon doesn't want to draw any attention to IQ improvements for fear of impacting 60D and 7D sales.

I was thinking the same thing. Several reviews have read that they used a pre-production model so they couldn't do that level of testing. That surprises me because the sensor should be a final and a RAW should require no camera processing or am I naive? I sure hope that the latter reason you give is right?

DP Review has some sample images posted in their review of the T4i. As a current T2i shooter I can tell the usable ISO is MUCH improved. Surprisingly even 12800 wasn't too bad and NIK software's Define 2.0 cleaned the bit of noise up nicely.

In the comparison you linked it says "The 650D has a radio-controlled flash system, akin to the EOS SD Mark III"...

I was not aware the 5DIII could fire the 600 EX-RT via wireless radio without having a radio trigger attached?!? I did not see this feature listed once in all the reading I've done about the 5DIII. If the 5DIII doesn't have it... why the hell not!!!??? I could only imagin how useful a built in radio trigger would be to a working professional who doesn't want the added weight and imbalance of an on camera flash just to trigger their wireless speedlites.

I'm I off in this assessment, or is this a pretty big deal in a rebel body?

This is software *only* and means you can control radio flashes through the camera display and mostly skip using the lcd in the flash, just like the 5d2 and infrared flashes.. For radio flashes, you still need a controller or 600rt attached, afaik there is no radio hardware inside the camera body.

I too am wondering this.  I was at a shoot this week with multiple photgraphers.  One had a radio flash unit set up on studio flashes.  Every time I used the 5D3 with my flash it would fire their strobes.  They did not have an IR system unless it was picking it up via their camera (The strobes were all wireless).

It gave me pause to consider the possibility that the 5DIII was emitting a wireless signal.  I discovered that IR and wireless master were enabled on my camera but I did not have time to turn it off (risking perhaps losing my own flash capability during a critical shoot).

I still dont know the answer and I dont have any wireless equipment to test it with.

I don't like the price point though.  :(.  But  that's not new to canon.  Ok to do that on the pro line but on consumer models you need to make it affordable for soccer moms.

canon rebel t3i also is a great dslr, see the t3i vs t4i comparison, http://t3ivst4i.com, due to the new t4i released, I believe t3i will have a great discount recently.
