It's so funny how so many people on these forums can never seem to answer a simple question. I agree with many here that the 600D is a fine camera and it's 18 mp doesn't hinder it's image quality, BUT, that's not what you asked is it? I would talk to your girlfriend about how she plans to use the images and if she plans on printing often. I would also show her many fine images by pros that were taken with far less mp's. Then I would discuss the many different features that various cameras and systems have weighing the pros and cons of each. Just let her know that, while the number of mp is not insignificant, there are many factors regarding image quality, ergonomics, and operation that may be more significant in actual use.

Nah. Let me talk to your girlfriend. I'm sure we'll both have a better time.
