Re: Suggestions for camera/lens combo for Italy

Lens choice. Well I'd go with the 18-55 and 55-250 as you seem to have them.

The T2i tends to overexpose shots in the evaluative metering mode

Actually it does not - you do that.

The camera does not know your priorities for what is over and under exposure in a shot. You're supposed to control that using exposure compensation or a different metering mode or both.

Your remark does suggest a lack of basic technique. I'd address that first with a book on basic technique. That really will improve your photos.

plus any shots with IOS400 (or more) are horribly grainy

Clearly you pixel peep. Stop doing that, it's pure folly. Think image as a whole, not pixels.

In fact at ISO 400 it's practically indistinguishable from the Canon 6D full frame. Just checked them in the DPR studio test.

So whatever problem you think you have it's not going to be fixed by getting a new camera.

. Shooting in RAW produces about 3 fps. I am hoping to upgrade to sometime better in 5-6 months.

What do you need more than 3 fps for ?

I've found that generally learning to time one shot is better than relying on the machine gun burst approach. YMMV.

Like I said, I think your problem is nothing to do with the camera.
