That snapshot page imho is pretty useless. The info are all numbers, and do not take the real world performance into account.

I think I'm down to the T3i or the T2i . Now I have to decide if the extra features are worth the extra money. Other than the flip out LCD are there any other major differences.

Another question. My dad has the Reble XTi and he has two lenses that he does'nt use (18-55 and 55-250) Will these lenses fit the T3i and the T2i? He said I can have them so I would only have to buy the body.

Yes both those lenses will work on any of the canon aps-c camera. But does his 18-55 have IS. Or is it the none IS. If it is not the IS, I would get the Canon with the kit lens.

The t3i can be used as a wireless commander for and external flash. I think the xti came with the original 18-55 non is lens so i would go for a kit 18-55is lens, also check the if the 55-250 for image stablising on it

I just got the Canon Rebel T2i and I can't wait to try it out. The battery is charging so I hope it hurries up. This is my first DSLR. Ijust traded in my Fuji HS20.

I hope you already have a memory card for the camera. When I first got my Canon 50D it refused to turn on at all, until I put in a card.

I have an 8gig and a 4gig and I've been playing with it all day. I can't believe the difference going from the Fuji HS20 to this one. The HS20 started getting a lot of noise at ISO 800. I took some pics at ISO 3200 with the new one and they were still clean.

Since you owned a super zoom, I assume that with your DSLR, you will eventually want to go to a bigger lens - therefore you might want to start thinking about this before you decide on a body.

I wanted the Nikon 70 - 300mm VR which I had used before, so I went with that and a D5100, lovely images.
