I received the T5i in the mail. Per Amazon rep, it is 100% refundable, even if opened, within 30 days.
My first impression: I like it a lot.
I find the controls easy. In fact, in Manual mode, I can switch Aperture, Shutter and ISO all while looking through the view finder.
Dial alone - changes Shutter speed
Dial + Av button w/Thumb - changes Aperture
Press ISO button once w/Index finger then Dial - Changes ISO
This is fast, intuitive and while I like the wheel of my G12 and can see how I would like the wheel of a 60d, but by all means, I am not direly missing it or feel it is limiting my abilities/needs.
I do like the lighter weight. With Lens, battery, it is very comfortable. I think I like the lightness vs the heavy (expensive feel) weight. Of course, this is my first camera, so I can understand and accept reviews/feedback regarding how the weight alters the "feel" of the equipment.
I do find the view finder a little on the small side. I find that I have to either get very close (pressing nose into LCD screen) in order to frame the shot + see the Information bar at bottom. This is an area I am a little bit concerned about. But so far, its not a show stopper.
At this point, I am most likely going to be keeping it, but I will continue my feedback.
Remember, I came from a fully pushed/experienced G12, and being budget centric, I think the price and T5i w/STM lens is a great next jump for me. I will push this camera and lens (multiple soon) to its limits and when I tire of this camera...well, I will be ready to jump up to the 70d or beyond!
