"Is it worth the extra $$$?"4.0 starson by Jefftech
Pros: Newer updated features. See below.
Cons: Higher price.
Summary: Well, the new T2i has new metering, a better battery, higher megapixels, different sized LCD & improved HD video.I returned the T1i for the T2i and they added a bag, filter & battery. Great service from Future Shop, big Pro.
My question is simple, is it worth the extra $200 or so to go for it over the very good T1i?
At this point, the 2009 T1i will be on sale and will provide 95% of the camera that the T2i offers.
You tell me, which would you buy if Canon were the final choice in this category of DSLRs?

Firstly, the T1i battery charger was a compact unit which had no cord, this one needs a cord, Con.
The LCD is clearer and larger, a Pro.
The grip seems more comfortable in my large hands, Pro.
The software was updated, Pro.
The rear buttons are easier to utilize, larger top knob, dedicated live view button, Pro.
Limited videography as of today, but the potential is there for some impressive videos, Pro.
More capacity with the new battery and accepts newer memory cards, Pro.
Not any heavier, looks fantastic, glad I returned the T1i.
