It has been a few years. This will be my third, all Canons. I am going from my Rebel XTi to a Rebel T3i. More megapixels (18 vs. 10) but the features I really like are the extended ISO range (for dim light shooting) and the flip around LCD screen on the back. I use this for work every day, so we get our money's worth out of them.
Also bought the updated Speedlite 430EX II flash:
I have long lenses, just gotta add a 10-20mm wide angle zoom and I'm all set.
