Default Upgrade from Canon XT to T2i?

I am thinking of upgrading from my XT to the T2i. Aside from the video option and the additional pixels, how significant would an upgrade be interms of taking photos?

There are a number of improvements that are in the T2i, but how useful you amy find them depends on what you shoot and how. Have you wanted to do something with your XT that you couldn't?

Exactly. Also what lenses do you have as these are likely to be more of a limiting factor than the body in a lot of situations, also not having a good flash will limit in many others?

All very good lenses, and the T2i will show their worth more clearly than the XT ever could.
