T3i - not really that much better than original Rebel (300D)?
1

I was reviewing my old 300D photos and comparing them with T3i results, and some of the original rebel photos are better than T3i when it comes to difficult lighting situations.  The white balance is better, and no complaints about focus.  The T3i with a kit lens is sometimes inferior.

Any thoughts?  Here is an example of a tough scene where the old Rebel did well.

I feel like I am fighting to get average results with the T3i unless using telephoto at the long end.
