The T2i is a great camera. I'm on a learning curve to understand all the features.
Good value combination
By Paul Muad Dib
from Santa Barbara, CA
The Rebel T2i is an excellent amatuer camera for the money. The 18-135 lens is a good value and performs well. The AF and IS work well. I am hard pressed to come up with any cons but I found one. Canon recommends storing the camera with battery removed. I want to store it with the battery installed and ready to go when a wild animal walks by the window (I live in the mountains).
One "Great" Camera...
from West Texas
This is a "Great" Camera. It does so much for the price, and does it very well. If you're coming from a Point and Shoot, or a lesser SLR prepare yourself for a wonderful surprise. Even with the "Kit" lens (mine is the 28-135mm) you'll see a tremendous difference with the 18 mega pixels. I don't have a single problem with the quality/price aspect. IMHO, Canon is the best out there; you won't be disappointed with the T2i...
