As always, Dpreview has explained it well. It is more than a minor update.
The irony of common sense, it is not that common.
I cannot deny anything I did not say.
A kitten dies every time someone uses "then" and "than" incorrectly.
I mock people who give their children odd spelling of names.

Looks good. But I'll stay with my T3i for now. That new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens looks good. If there are any sales on it for the 4th of July I may get that.

May God bless you.

Just received the t4i. Wanted to upgrade my t2i and stay with a rebel. Image quality off the bat is better than the t2i. While I thought the touchscreen was a gimmick at first, changing settings using the touch screen is very fast.

The 5 fps max frame rate is noticeably quicker than the t2i. Nw I want the 40mm.
