So I'm in the market for a camera. Been using nothing but point and shoots but just got engaged and feel that we might need a better camera to document our new adventures.
We are planning a 2 week honeymoon trip to Europe and would like a quality camera but that won't feel like a hassle to carry around. On amazon, I can get a T3i with the kit lens and EF-S 55-250mm for $888.95.
The alternative would appear to be a G12 for $469.00.
So the question is, given that we would keep this camera for a long time and our trip is far enough away that I would have time to learn how to use the T3i, does it make sense to spend almost twice the cost of the G12?
I'll check out the two cameras at a store and get a feel for the physical size difference, but what has your experience been using the T3i on vacation and would we be better off just getting the G12?
