I also agree, the new Rebel is awesome, but I could never go back to that user interface. Image quality/performance be dammed, I can't live without that shoulder LCD and those 4 magic buttons on top.

And the quick control dial on the back. I've eyed up these new Rebels also, but having 2 dials is tough to give up.

- 1 < !
the one wheel on the Rebel models makes it easy to change settings with one hand!.
and it would be a plus to "blow the XXD out of the water" with image quality and ISO performance !

How are 2 dials better than 1 ??
What am I missing here?

One for aperture and one for shutter speed. Or just using the rear dial for exposure compensation. Once you leave the Rebel line and start working with the front dial and rear quick control dial, it's really tough to turn back. And if you've never tried it, I'm not sure you can appreciate it.

I can understand what you're saying but for me it's just as easy with one dial to change aperture and shutter speed.

I have to agree with that. Shooting manual on the 40D is a lot easier than the T2i.. BUT my 40D sucks on 3200... SO I have to compromise;)

I agree, shooting manual on the Rebel bodies with one wheel is easy-
look ma - one hand!

First thing I thought of when reading this was the in camera picture style. If both of you are shooting jpg and have different picture styles selected, the cameras are processing the images differently. Each style has a different sharpness/contrast/col​or setting. Other than the noise reduction issue, you should be able to yield similar results with a little post processing if it's just a picture style thing.

But... I wouldn't just go running and switch to his picture style setting either. He might have all the sharpness/contrast/sat​uration jacked up. When you go to shoot normal situations with more color, you'll be likelier to clip the color and blow highlights.

The T2i is pretty aggressive with in-camera NR for jpegs. And it's a pretty good NR. But it's kinda deceptive when comparing it to other cameras, especially those that did not have any jpeg in-camera NR. (Such as the XTi). The OOC jpegs look fantastic from the T2i, but at closer inspection it's obvious that subtle detail is wiped out by ths NR at higher ISO's, which is OK because a high ISO image quality is always some sort of compromise between detail and noise. If you want low noise and great detail preservation, get a D3s (or a 5dII) :) But seriously, the jpegs look great from the T2i thanks to a pretty good NR system.

I think the T2i is a great body, I owned a 40D and loved it, but I don't doubt that the T2i is better IQ-wise.

Yep.

The T2i has 18 megapixels to work with when doing noise reduction. You may reduce the amount of detail in the shot by doing noise reduction, but try dropping the shot's resolution to 10 megapixels (3888x2592 -- same as the 40D) afterwards and see how the detail looks then.
