Or am I the only lonely soul that purchased this camera? :o

If you have it, have you found it does well for sports? Long term use during the day, does it feel comfortable?

I must a horrible n00b and bought the only camera no one owns lol

i have the t4i..from what I can gather from reviews and such..its virtually the same internals as the t4i. However would love to have the stm kit lens.

Welcome to the forums. Everybody's definition of how good a given combo of body and lens is suitable for a specific task is different. I've been using rebels for the last three years and haven't outgrown mine yet. keep snapping away and you will get better with experience. It does take awhile though.

It's a very capable camera. Might want to get a grip and extra batteries, makes all the difference and provides flexibility.

I thought they were the same as well, but I didn't want to jump into a t4i thread and be banished for eternity for mixing the two.

Got some actual use out of my camera today. Used my telephoto lense, did really well I thought.

Thank you. Sunset/sunrise are my fav times, plus the winter. Did a little cropping work on one. Looks better :) All others are direct from the camera

Have this camera from day one, I am satisfied, especially when combined with EF 28mm f/1.8. ;)

Got a T4i for Christmas... Dropped it at my brothers wedding, thankfully my wife bought the replacement plan. Several weeks later they told me my camera was unrepairable. I was able to use the original purchase price as a store credit but they had no more T4i in stock. Got the T5i with the 18-135 IS STM lens for less than a hundred bucks more. They also let me keep everything that came in the box with the T4i except the camera and lens, woo hoo, extra batterie and charger.
Is it just me or do the grips feel a little better and is the auto focus a bit faster on the T5i? Could be my imagination?

Here is a pic I shot with the T5i and my 50mm lens on a tripod with a remote shutter release.

OK, last night I decided to step out of my comfort zone and went manual. Out of several hundred bulb shots this was my only one that was close to framed right, in focus, not blown out, etc, etc.
Unedited, with the exception of resizing in paint, direct from the camera.

ISO 100, f/8, 135mm for 11.5 seconds

Question for OuterHeaven, did you use and ND filter? I love the way water is softened by these types of shots.
Great pic, by the way.

Thank you! No, I just stopped down the lens to f/16, I forgot to take with me my ND8 filter. :oops:

Another one from tonight.

So, I did it. Last night I purchased the t5i kit with 18-55mm STM lens on amazon, a 32gb class 10sdhc card and an extra battery. I am pumped! Now just to anxiously await its arrival!!!
