I have that camera and have no complaints! The kit lens will do for your everyday picture.  It’s really light, so great to carry around with.  Adding new lenses to the collection will be a very expensive hobby though. 

The only thing is that you might consider buying it from Amazon, they have it for $435

The T2i/T3i is slightly better I think, 18 MP vs 12 MP, and a slightly better sensor.  I dont think it’s worth 1.5x though unless you are really into photography and would notice a difference.  Between T2i and T3i, they are basically the same except for cosmetics, T3i has the flip out screen, but is larger.  Between those two, I’d save the $100 and go for the T2i, unless you REALLY want the flip out screen.

I am looking into getting the Canon Rebel T3i. I did alot of research on it and went to Best Buy to see it in action and I have to say, it is pretty amazing.

I love the Canon Rebel series. I personally use BH photo . com or Adorama . com

(I have a Canon 5D mark II, Canon 40D, Canon G10, Canon G12 and a Canon Ae-1)

I have a canon rebel xti and I love mine, it’s a bit older now, I got it in 2006 I believe.  but it still works great and takes great pictures!  I think the one your looking at is a step up (or two) from the one I have, I can only imagine it would be at least equally amazing.

@hopefloats: Oh yes, the T3 with kit lens is certainly miles above a little point and shoot camera.

I’ve used Canon Rebels for YEARS and they are wonderful cameras. Great quality, easy to use, really hard to break (I’d know, I drop mine a lot :P). I just upgraded my Canon Rebel XT (5 years old) to the T2i and I LOVE it.

@hopefloats: The 18-55mm kit lens that comes with the body is a decent lens for everyday use, and yes it is way better quality than what comes in point-and-shoots. For hobby/light use this lens is fine, but if your Fiance gets into photography more, I would highly recommend the 50mm f/1.8 prime lens. It’s under $100 and it’s my favorite lens I own, I use it for almost everything. Everyone I know who has it loves it too.

@pinkshoes: Agree with this, those of you who posted looking at the T3i, there is hardly any difference between the T2i and the T3i except cosmetic things. I got my T2i with body, kit lens, telephoto lens, and carrying bag for <$1000 at Sam’s club, and the T3is in the same kit were WAY more expensive. So if you don’t care about having the flip out screen, save yourself a lot of money and buy the T2i, you’ll never know the difference.

Another thumbs up to the camera and to getting the 50 mm 1.8. I use that as my everyday lense and love love love it. Prime= no zoom so the zoom in and out is your body aka moving close/further from the subject. I buy all my equipment from b&h- you should find better deals from a store ( online or brick and mortar) that is geared solely towards audio and visual than a big box store like Best Buy. Plus then there is the option to buy refurbished gear. Plus I just like the idea of supporting a business that specializes as opposed to a BB or a Target :p
