Hi I have just gone to a 650D from a 50D and am very pleased with the T4i

before that i went from a 30D to a 50D and that was a very major worthwile upgrade (LCD alone is worth the upgrade)

the 650D has better IQ than the 50D... i shot some iso 1600,3200,6400 last night in my computer room in low light and the 1600 didn't need any post noise reduction (in camera NR set to STD as was my 50D)

with post NR with noise ninja 3200 gave a good result, iso 6400 is definitely noiser and i would only use if i had to but with post NR i still got a very reasonable image  the 50D is noticable not as good as the 650 D at higher iso's

the 650D may not have the build quality of the 50D but you don't hear any complaints about rebels anyone so its a non issue for me

PS i have a5D2 as well but the 650D is  amore fun camera with its touch screen and liveview focus abilities etc

I do not recommend an old 5D i have had one... go for the 5d2 they are getting cheaper and cheaper
