Thanks for the advice guys. I decided that I will keep the T2I and get better with that camera. I have another question, should I buy the Canon EF 50 mm 1.8 to take better pictures during the holiday now?

Good luck using it on the T2i. Without af microadjust and with a much inferior AF sensor compared to the 60D you'll be focusing manually most of the time. And it's not an easy thing, to manually focus on a T2i!!!!

I have a 50/1.8 and a T2i and it just doesn't focuses accurately via phase-detect, and have a few friends with the same combo and they say the same. If you plan on using fast lenses and AF, go for the 60D.

P.S.: The 60D doesn't have AF microadjust either, you'll have to send it to be calibrated.
