It just occurred to me that I did not mention I would like to stick with Canon. For some reason my Fiancee did have that one stipulation. Apparently her Dad is a huge fan. I see the 7D is a bit sturdier....what would steer you away from it?

Does her father currently own any Canon gear? If so why not look it over and examine the images and see how it suits you ergonomically and performance wise.

The 7D is 3.5 yrs old but nevertheless a great camera which can be found mint, used for a great deal. It's an advanced model which has a more robust build with a high frame rate and has a great AF system. The T4i is a highly rated newer entry level body that won't overwhelm you nor break the bank and produces outstanding images. Check the appropriate Canon forums for comments, samples and opinions.
