    I'm waiting on the one equipped with the new 18-135 that's not been shipped yet. Anyone have the 18-55 T4i yet? If so, thoughts?

    Meh, I like my D7000.

    I won't buy another camera till the magapixels almost double for the same price. By then the sensors will be much greater than the T4i has (which as you may know, the D7000's sensor is built on Canon technology, and is adjustable in the RAW/NEF file).

    Sensor technology is getting better and better. Much like computers, the moment you guy a digital camera, something better is only a few months away.

    Anyways, I haven't gotten the T4i yet. I'm waiting to see if there are any bugs first. Then I'll wait and see who will offer it for a lower price.. Amazon or Costco. icon_biggrin.gif

    I really can't wait. I sold my T2 on eBay in April thinking this was going to be out shortly. Car show season really gets going in earnest in a couple of weeks plus I do all my own commercial real estate photography so I've waited a lot longer than I thought I would.

    I hired a tutor to help me get used to CS6 to fill in the time. I have never used after effects and premier pro before.

    If you're buying it for commercial use, the only thing you need to worry about is how easily it can be adjusted mid-shoot, and whether or not it has the processing power you need (ie. sports photography requires really fast processing speed to get several shots at once).

    The lens makes more difference than the megapixels or body. icon_wink.gif

    The AF on the T2 would get too confused doing video. And vid is about 50% of what I do these days. I'm hoping the t4 is better.

    Ok I digress there. The video on the D7000 sucks baws. I have the JVC HD-7 for that. And Vegas Video for post processing.

    That's exactly what I used to do, but I go to the car shows to have some fun and I feel like an ass clown (not the first time) carrying all that shit around. I would hugely enjoy it if one camera did both and both well.

    I heard the autofocus motor running, and it seemed to be very slow. That's the same problems I have with the D7000. Other than that, the video quality (of both) are great.

    The new 18-135 hasn't shipped yet so it was likely the old one that he was using or the 18-55, which is not silent, I don't think. However, this is one of the reason I'm learning Premier Pro and After Effects, to be to alter things like this .... like I’ve got time to undertake anything new.

    And I noticed that the AF is slow. Fast vid AF is one of the big reasons I'm making the switch so I wasn't happy to see that, but you're correct, at least the vid quality is great.
