OK, so I had a 30d for about 5 years and really enjoyed the experience. Been sitting back watching all the new cams come and go and finally this year decided to upgrade. Did my research and finally sold the 30 and pulled the trigger on a new T5i, what a let down. The camera itself is more than adequate, I am just a hobbiest and I'm sure the cam was a better tool than I am a photographer but it was the FEEL!! I could not get over how it felt in my hands and the differences in where everything was. Anyways, bought it on 6/17, my birthday, and just boxed it up for return tonight. Back to the research board.
