How do they stack up sense they are basically the same price.

The lines are getting blurred.

Hard to say with only Canon's spec sheet to go by. No reviews or independent testing yet. It won't even be available until March.

Wow how many more ridiculous T2i vs WHATEVER threads are going to pop up tonight?

Why would you even try comparing a full frame to a rebel?

I'm going to guess the 5d still has better IQ and high ISO performance. I don't think the extra megapixels in the t2i will be of much benefit, though the video, faster AF, higher fps, etc may. It depends on what you are looking for in a camera.

maybe not. 5D is still above $1000, maybe $1200 now, still 50% more

Not really, they're very different cameras with very different features. :confused:

Well the T2i has 18MP, the 1D4 has a paltry 16MP!

Who the hell would use a camera with only 16 megapixels? Pedestrian!

And you can edit movies on the T2i, I hear. That'll put Avid out of business.

The two cameras do not really compare well at all, so it's up to what the purchaser wants.

The 5D has actually gone up in price since this time last year. Refurbs are $300 more than last February, used prices are slightly up ($1000-1300). Show me a Rebel that's held its value for a year.

I see the 5D as a camera that will basically go down in history (and a very short-lived history, on the grand scale of things) as a camera that did a lot of things right at a time when people wanted those things.

No Rebel is likely to do the same, although only history will tell. :)

Well a 5D and a T2i are both digital cameras, but after that they are not exactly on the same page. You can add a damned wine bottle opener on your T2i but it will still never equal a FF 5D, even if the price is close.

Buy the 5D, then you can be a successful wedding photographer.

Seriously I would buy a 5D or a 1dmkIIn before a plastic toy that takes movies.

for real. the average consumer wants mega pixels. that's all they know - megapixels. I told some of my middle-aged female clients about my camera and they immediatly wanted to know how many MP. I told them 15. "oh, my son's is 12, so it's not much better than his..."
