T4i grossly overpriced at $950?
Jun 8, 2012

Right now on ebay the going rate for a new T3i + lens is $670 with one seller offering $660. I expect the price to drop to $650 or lower once the T4i starts flooding the market. With that being said, is there any rational justification for spending an extra $300 on the T4i when they barely updated anything except some beginner modes and better AF for video? It looks like they started cheating with NR in RAW as well in order to make image quality look better. I just don't see anything close to $300 worth of improvements and it appears that for now this camera is for the wannabe gearheads who think they're getting the latest technology or something and paying a big premium for it.
