I planned on upgrading my T2i to 6D plus lenses but it's not going to work right now. I still need a second body. I was looking at the 7D but I'm reading that there is no real difference in noise or image quality when comparing to T2i. Meanwhile, what would speak against getting a Rebel body (let's say T4i) and put the $$$ towards the FF? In-camera calibration and the 19 focus points are definitely tempting (since I'm a toggler anyways). Would those be worth the adidtional cost? A used FF isn't an option at this time neither since I all my lenses work on crop bodies only.

I don't know anything about the T type cameras, but my son had one, don't know which one it was, but it got stolen and I gave him my spare 7D. He loved it said that there was no comparison between the cameras the 7D was a whole lot better. Perhaps Matt or Mark can better answer the question. I know from my viewpoint I would never consider a T type camera.

Have you ever used it in low light situations?

Can't offer much help as my most recent camera are 50D's. The 7D will likely have more "bells & whistles" features, but you may not need them. Browse through the link below of a Google search of "7d vs t4i compared"...

Refurb may save some $$$$....

Here is a comparison between 7D, 60D, and 55D (T2i here in the US).

Let's start with this, why do you NEED a second body right now that stops you from holding out til the 6D can happen?

What are you looking for in a second body?

Thanks for input. I need a second body because I offer birth photography. I wouldn't want to dare my only camera breaking while I'm there shooting the birth :shock:

Dont know anything about Canon, but since you are shooting birth photography at some point you may want to use the video capability. Search out one that has that capability.

I'd look for a camera with decent noise control at a higher ISO.

7D has good results from what I have seen, lots of FPS when that baby is coming so you don't miss the moment.

I've had my 7D for over 2 years and love it. No complaints. Some of the newer Rebels my have similar specs and the articulating screen.
