That's a lot fo great points. I appreciate the response. My other lens is 55-250 Canon so I have quite the range covered but the introduction of the new 18-135 kind of throws that around a little bit. I love my Tamron so I'm leaning towards that. The better f stop on it and clarity is also important. I want to shoot video, but I'm going to start getting into vintage MF lenses and think I'll be using those for shooting more. I don;t really want to keep both as I need one to subsidize the purchase of the t4i. I know I can get more money for the Canon as a resale as well. I think this post emphasizes I'm leaning towards selling the STM but just wanted some more input before I commit.

Finances aside, just want to note you do have manual focus in your STM lenses already if you use the back button focus I noted above. It's especially handy for cinema. Since you've already got the STM lens in hand perhaps give it a try?

I did a quick search in this thread and nothing came up regarding a question I have. Did Canon remove the movie digital zoom from the t4i? Is the t3i the last body that has it? I looked through the manual as well that's why I'm assuming it's missing. TIA!

I haven't come across any digital zoom feature on the 4ti.

Having said that, with most software you'd use to pull together a video file, there's plenty of pan/zoom features you can use on your video (or still) file anyhow. So personally I wouldn't want to mess with digital zoom while actually shooting anyhow.

Of course one can always use real optical zoom (with a zoom lens) live while shooting. But as you know this would produce a very different artistic result than a digital zoom feature would (which just reduces resolution logically, not physically). Again, my own preference would be, if I were going to use a digital zoom effect, to just do that in PP - not while I'm busy shooting the actual scene.

Hope this reply helps.

Really great photos! Going to stalk this thread for a while; deciding whether I should go for the T4i or not. Hope to see more photos soon:cool:

Here are a couple of shots with a T4i - one nearby and one from a distance. Needless to say, the resolution of these images is significantly diluted to get them down to <150k filesize jpg for uploading.

I am finding the T4i to be an excellent camera given its price, portability and 1.6x crop size. Enjoy!

Excellent! I love the photo of the dog. What lens did you use?

Thanks - that one was shot through an EF200mm f/2.8L II USM (wide open) from about 15' away. He's always a willing subject :-)

Here's another, this time using the EF40mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens. If you're considering the T4i, have a look at this surprisingly compact (and very affordable) prime lens.

As you may be aware, 40mm x 1.6 crop factor makes it equal to a 64mm (on a full frame body) so it's a great "walk around" lens that performs surprisingly well. At f/2.8 you have a fairly wide range of DOF/shutter speed choices - hence the obligatory misty water shot ;)

I finally got my t4i in the mail. I can't say how much I am impressed with this DSLR. Here's a pic I took today at Deals gap. 40mm Pancake lens. I touched up a little bit with light room but not much. Let me know what you think.

I believe the difference is with the digital video zoom in the t3i you can still have 1080 resolution. Doing it afterward in PP is more crop than zoom. Could be wrong, I still use iMovie for editing. Nothing too fancy.

Ah, very interesting point ... hadn't considered that distinction. I've always assumed that digital zoom was really just cropping of a sort being performed in the camera (by the camera chip instead of your computer chip). Hence the apparent 1080 would be just an "upsized" resolution, same as in post processing.

But I may be mistaken - as I often am! :D

I know the 60D crops the res. That was suppose to be the advantage with the 600D.

Now you got me thinking - since the native resolution of all these EOS bodies is far higher than 1080, you're probably right, i.e., digital zoom may be selecting a different subset of the pixels (from within the larger sensor capture resolution) for storage within the .MOV video file being stored on the SD card when you invoke a digital zoom feature.

And again, I have not stumbled across any digital zoom function on the T4i, so I would say this digital zoom feature has likely been removed. I wonder if Magic Lantern (if/when available for the 650/T4i) might restore this capability, or if the switch to Digic-5 makes that no longer a retrievable capability.

Thanks for pointing this out.
