7d has micro focus adjustment. I won't own another body without it.

Buying a grip will make both cameras more comfortable. There are technology advances that might be overlooked in the T4i that I wanted to point out. Another one is in camera HDR. It is simple and it works. There are pros and cons to everything.....good luck with your decision.

In camera HDR would be nice. I have an aftermarket grip right now, but I don't like having to take it off to get to my SD cards. Will have to see if that would still be the case with the T4i

Why do you have to take off the battery grip to get your sd cards? I am pretty sure that is not necessary.

Yeah! Wish my 60D had it.

Why do you have to take off the battery grip to get your sd cards? I am pretty sure that is not necessary.

On the T3, with the grip I have I do, the SD card slot is in the same compartment as the original battery, I had to remove the battery door, and the grip has an extender that goes into make contact with the original battery connectors. Unless I am missing something very obvious .... great now I gotta go take a closer look lol.

the grip will not affect your getting to the SD card.

The T3i has the card in a separate area that is unaffected by the grip. I would think the T4i is the same.

If I'm in your position, I'd see if I can get some money into a lens or a tripod. Since the T4i, 60D and 7D has essentially the same sensor, I think a good lens or a tripod can be infinitely better in landscape than a higher performance level camera. Maybe some ND filters.

However, the microadjustment on the 7D can be mighty tempting.

Got most of that already, got the good tripod (there is always better but this one is working great), just picked up the 15-85 and am loving it, got the Sigma 30 for low light, filters are covered as well :)

And figured if someone (aka father-in-law) was going to buy a new body for me I should know which one I wanted :)

I also have the 15-85 and the SIgma 30mm. While I would like some L primes, these two lenses are serving me quite well.

This is a great discussion and it couldn't be more timely. I have 2-50ds and an XTi. I was planning on selling my 50d's this week and buying a 7d. I originally thought I'd buy a 6d because I really wanted a good landscape camera and the FF sensor can't be beat. However, I still shoot my grandchildren's sporting events and the 6d autofocus doesn't seem like it holds a candle to the 7d. The 19 point cross-type focus on the 7d is hard to beat. I will miss the FF sensor but I suspect it's still a good compromise under the circumstances. I will but FF sensor camera someday but it's not in the cards now. I ruled out the T4i because I just don't like the small frame feel. If size doesn't matter the T4i specs look pretty darn good.

I am thinking I will mind the small frame size, its one of the things I don't like about my T3, even with a grip it just does not feel right.

For what its worth, I think the T4i is a bit bigger than the T3. When I put the battery grip on my T3i, which is the same size as the T4i, its comfortable to hold. However, I still much prefer the size of the 60D.

I believe you are right about the size, I held one last week and it still felt small.
