I previously had been using a Nikon D70S for the last few years when it came out on the market. It took a little while to learn how to navigate through the menu and setting. So I have DSLR experience to my advantage. The Canon T3i was a breeze to use and much easyier to navigate through menu and settings. I've been looking to buy a new DSLR for a long time with video function. I've done so much research on cameras (at least 1+ years). I was looking to purchase the Canon T4i at first but I've been doing thorough research on this camera. I found that there were only a few new functions (video autofocus, touch screen, digic 5) to name a few. After checking out reviews and videos on the T4i I found I was not very impressed and disapointed in the video autofocus (check out on Youtube this feature and you'll understand). The price was a few hundred more for the T4i system (Body, 1 lens, $899). The T3i I purchased for an amazing deal at B & H Photo, NY ending soon, for (body, 18 - 55 mm & 75 - 300 mm lens, 16gig memory card, $599, $650 with taxes). When I opened the box to play around with it I didn't even look at the manual and worked my way around all navigation easily. I shot a few photos at objects around the house and the pics were outstanding (details, contrast, oolors). My old Nikon D70S doesn't even compare, I guess 18 megpixel helps. Like I said I seen the T3i in action on Youtube and the video itself was amazing even in low light situation being that you have full control (frame rate, exposure, shutter speed, etc) of settings to shoot low light. I am very happy that I made an informed desicion on my purchase. I hope you too as well before buying.
