There are several differnces between the 7d and the T2i. Cost is defintly on the side of the T2i. I happen to like the feel of the T2i, I wish it had a higher burst, but I did not pay the extra. It is a great camera and all the EF and EF-S lens will fit!

I am so undecided the T2i sounds good and yes it is more in my budget. I think my girlfriend wants that camera. the camera doesn't feel sturdy it feels like plastic. How long have you had your camera? Is it sturdy?

It may be plastic, so is the d90. But they are made of high grade plastic.

The biggest 2 things is the remote flash control and the super fast 7+fps burst rate. HD is about the same with the 2. Just a bit more bells and whistle. If you do not shoot allot of sports and high speed action the T1i or T2i would do well.

The 7d has a full size (100%) viewfinder and has a superior Auto focus system. It has a magnesiun frame (stronger) is weather sealed and has a higher continous shooting rate. It also I beleive (having just played with one for a couple of hours this weekend) a much higher learning curve and is heavier. For right now dispite the burst rate and weather sealing I prefer the T2i, but again that is just me.

i would not really worry about the plastic body. no amateur photographer is going to put it through something it cannot handle. they are really tougher than you think and most amateurs baby their equipment anyways.

the t2i is a much better value for the standard amateur. if someone shoots primarily sports, needs weather sealing, or has money to blow, then the 7d.
