Looking at the specs the T2i has the same sensor as the 7D so the image quality would most likely be the same. Out of camera results may be slightly different depending on what processing differences they make in the T2i body.

I think I may be waiting until the T2i comes out and see how people like it but int he meantime, has anyone heard of this website "fumfie.com"? I was browsing cameras and saw new EOS 7D's for $1399.00 for body only, it might be something I'd be interested in if it's legit. Has anyone purchased from them or knows anyone who has? https://fumfie.com/product/255.5/381...al_Camera_Body_

While resellerratings has positive comments on it I'm not sure I'd be too trusting. That price is $300 below what the major reliable etailers are selling the 7d for. For a camera selling as well as the 7d I wouldnt trust a price that far below what the pack is selling for. $1600 maybe but not $1400.

Yes, that is what raised the red flag, it's way to cheap, however some of the other camera's are not that much under priced that I would think something is fishy. If it is legit it sure is a good price.

Argh, so if I get the T2i it's going to be with the just the kit lense for a bit, or I was thinking get the xsi body with the 70-200 4L right now. will that be capable of child sports to start, at least better than running the T2i and kit lens? Maybe I should just wait, grrr I cant decide hah.
