Having had both cameras I agree with the above statement completely. I also find the articulating screen a huge plus over the T2i.

Absolutely, makes a big time difference for shots not at eye level.

I think the specs are muddy with the t2i and t3i center point because I don't think it's a high precision center point.

Having said that the difference between the two cameras are like night and day with respect to autofocus.

After doing more searching ... you're right. The official Canon website doesn't seem to list anything about the T2i having a high-precision center point even though some 3rd party websites do. T3i is listed as being only vertical line sensitive at 2.8. T4i is listed as diagonal cross 2.8. Thanks for the clarification.

Actually - it does- it's just on an earlier page- not on the specifications page... It's on the features page - i think.. But it's there- f/2.8 sensitive cross type center point AF.

But the t4i has a couple of years additional development time working in its favor as well.. Better algorithms.. Time to work out kinks.. Definitely an accurate focusing camera. The 18-135 STM lens is a very nice lens- especially since it is relatively cheap - money-wise...
