Anyone else out there, got theres yet? If so thoughts, comments etc.

I picked my kit up about a week and half ago, but have not been able to play around to much due to weather conditions....

So far seems nice a big difference from my Nikon D40 I started with...

I have been playing with mine for about a week now, and I just keep getting happier and happier with it. I came from a XTi which is a great little shooter, but the T1i is just so nice. I haven't really found anything I do not like about it.

I bought an Xsi on March 21st. The T1i was announced the following Wednesday, so I returned it and waited for the T1i.

So far, I'm glad I did. Having video was a factor for me, although I won't be shooting a bunch of it, mostly stills.

If I'd had the bread, I would have gone for the 5Dii, but it's triple the price. My only complaint so far is that it feels too light in my hands, but I'm used to using T90s.

Did you have time to shoot a bit with your Xsi before you returned it? If yes, did you notice a big difference between it and the T1i (regarding IQ, focusing etc...)?

It handles just like the T1i. Same body size and weight, control placement etc.

It seems a bit slower to me, but I can't really tell unless I had the Xsi side-by-side. Focusing seems the same. I don't know what IQ is. It must mean that mine is too low to know. I'm still new to digital.

Thanks for that. Yes, IQ seems to be great, just like the Xsi. I did download the images from the Xsi and they are comparable. The short videos I have done are quite good quality (720p).

One thing I will say about video in an SLR package, and that is moving subjects are difficult to track with live mode. I shot some passenger jets taking off at DFW the other day and just using the LCD to keep the subject framed is quite hard. I wish it had a viewfinder for video, but all video in SLRs will have this problem.

I abosolutely love the T1i's IQ.

Great camera ... I havn't been able to put it down since I got it. High Def recording @ 720 is flawless and smooth.

Great Cam.

Here are a few shots I took when I first got it. More pics coming + HD VIdeo.

Cause the FPS @ 1080 are too slow. Everyone I know with the T1i has been disappointed with the video capabilities. I am also thinking about using this as my 2nd body.

Two reasons: 1080p is only 20 Frames Per Second. Also, it uses up space faster than 720, so you can record more on a SD card in 720 than 1080.

Here's a question for you:

Video capability aside, is there enough of an improvement over the XSi to justify buying an X1i instead, or are the two pretty close in quality and features?
