The Canon T4i is likely a good camera. I have an older T1i that has performed very well, though I now use a newer full frame Canon camera almost all the time.

See DP review at http://www.dpreview.c...­, particularly the conclusions section for more information about pluses and minuses of the T4i. Costco is good to deal with, but other stores are offering deals on this model too, so check around.

Important question is whether you want the included kit lenses (which cover the range from wide angle to telephoto fairly well) or body only and buy better quality lenses purchased separately (but may cost more). Suggest reading lens reviews too before you decide.

While I agree with everything Ira says, I have to admit that my attraction to large (heavy) digital SLRs is waning. Don't get me wrong, I love all of the manual adjustments and gizmos that these things provide and the images are great. But I find that I don't take my camera everywhere I go because it is just too big and bulky.

The best camera is the one you have when you need it. I have long been looking for that perfect mix of size and functionality. I think my next purchase (very soon) is going to be this one:

it has an APS-C sized 20 Mega Pixel sensor and the images will rival most (if not all of the digital SLRs on the market). Ok, it has a plastic body but at least has a metal lens mount and tripod socket. For the price? ar you nuts?? $600 bucks for a camera that takes great pictures and can be taken anywhere?

Be on the lookout for all my Canon stuff on Craig's list soon!!!
