However I factor cost into it as well and bought a mint condition (less than 15 shutter count) t3i for $540 including the best copy of the Nifty Fifty I've come across yet. So if I found a mint condition t2i at $350, I'd find that an unbearably compelling purchase as well. If you can score a ridiculously cheap t2i, get it...if you can score a ridiculously cheap t3i, get that too.

FWIW, Amazon has the brand new T3i (body only) for $579.

Which is the same price amazon is selling the T2i (body only)

For some reason at least on amazon the T2i price is tracking really close to the T3i ($669 versus $699 for the body plus kit lens).

If the difference was less than say $50-$100 I'd probably go with the T3i. You'll have a bit better resale when/if you decide to upgrade and since you are just starting out you don't know for sure you'll never need the wireless flash or pivot LCD (great for kids, esp if you want to take picts at eye level).
