I was thinking of getting a T3i, but was not sure if there are better bodys out there for a comprable price, I have a decent amount of cannon threaded lenses, so take into account me having to by a new lenses or two If I get a non "cannon threaded" camera. I am open to buying used, but I dont really know of any photography forums with a B/S/T. I dont care that much about weight, but I love an easy to use interface, just FYI.

I've been looking at the T2i/T3i for a while now, but what keeps me from buying one is the low amount of frames you can capture in burst. They're just... slow, and I'd give up 3 megapixels and 1080p video to get 16 frames of continuous RAW for a similar price from a used 50D.

Used 50/40D might be the way to go.

From what I have heard and seen the T3i is a good camera for it's price.
If you want to compare it to other cameras you can always go to dpreview.com

I am a Nikon fan but since you already have Canon threaded lenses I would too recommend looking for one of those, buying a new set of lenses you already have isn't fun unless you really want something other than what you have.

I have the the t3i. It is indeed slow like the other guy said. But i really like it. Super easy to use and overall just a really nice camera. Although it is my first dslr. I would probably go with a 50d tho unless you have to get one new

3,7 fps is OK, I mean, I don't complain about my 6fps but it's not like it's the most important thing in the world.

"only" 1/4000 in shutter is average, but I like to have it above that(I love super high shutter speeds 1/8000)

ISO tolerance is in my opinion one of the most important things now since contrast, clarity and sharpness is practically the same now in my experience.
From what I have heard the Lower end canons are bad at that, but again, it's only from what I have heard since I have no experience with Canon past the 400D.(it was terribad at ISO but it's old and cheap)

I own a 7d, personally i would suggest the 60d. Great camera, has all the goodies the 7d has besides the 7d's 8fps, and the 60d's flip screen makes me jealous. t3i is a great camera also, there's not much to say about them. Regardless if you go with the t2i, t3i, 60d you'll be pleased. I personally think lenses are what make the difference. Just dish out money on the lens, i made a mistake not purchasing a good lens and researching it.
