The T3I takes much better than "ok" photos. Seriously. This is a very gear centric forum, which is great. But at the end of the day, most current cameras can whip most cameras of 25 years ago.

Very much so. It's the same line of thinking that led me to my SL1: same sensor and much else as other cameras, great price, and small enough to leave around for random shots. And when a picture is bad, it's because of me. I haven't asked it to shoot birds or sports, though.

Heya,

Is the 60D better? In some ways, but not from an image quality standpoint. Features are a preference between the two.

I have a 60D as well. Maybe I'm not discerning enough, but the pics between the 60d and T3I are very similiar, at least to me. The 60d wins in focusing.

Heya,

IQ wise, they are probably near identical, at least to our eyes. And the 60D should win in focusing and FPS, those 40d/50d/60d/70d cameras share the same guts in many ways as the Rebels, they just have the better AF systems and generally better AF points and faster FPS. But, at the same price range, you get different features on the modern Rebels that may not be on the prosumer crop. That's where the Rebel can be the better camera, where features outweigh the FPS and AF system, or the prices are significantly different.

The latest T6s/T6i, etc, are looking to be very potent APS-C's. At this point I really think they should drop the Rebel name and just go with the number system. Kiss/Rebel is really an irrelevant naming system.

Very best,

I agree. The T6S, if reviewed and tested well, will be on my want list.

Heya,

I'm waiting for when they release a $1k or less APS-C (or even a stripped full frame, if that will ever happen, probably not) with the option to turn off the AA filter, with a swivel LCD and good low ISO performance. I was hoping the next gen T6's would have this option, as most offerings lately are going back to lack of AA filter (both Nikon & Canon, even though Pentax has done this for far longer). I was close to getting a Pentax K-5 IIs for this very reason (but didn't simply due to the lens confliction, and adapting to Pentax is not a viable option or I would have done it already), but I'm waiting to see if Canon can really drop a better APS-C sensor with better DR at ISO 100, with a bit more resolution than the K-5 IIs and good things like the swivel LCD, etc, and of course, the primary feature being lack of AA filter.

Very best,

And see, this is funny because my two concerns with the T6s are:

-reliable AF
-good high-ISO

Low-ISO DR is irrelevant to me.

When I got my 70D I briefly listed my t3i for sale, then apologized to everyone that emailed me as I decided to keep it. It's just too good of a camera to let go.

For me, there is something intangible that makes me love this camera. It's not just me either if you read the article. I reach for it often.

Agree when I go back to it after a while, I'm surprised how much I enjoy the shutter sound.
