For as long as I can remember I knew I would upgrade to the 60d but after comparing the two listed above maybe the T4i seems like a better choice. any thoughts?

Background..I am a wannabe but with years of classes just no confidence to think I have any talent. I am good with that so mostly I am a soccer mom with a camera. I stil have my original digital rebel with 30k clicks, the kit lens, 28-135 and a 300mm. I need to get a faster lens but clearly I havent kept up with my research so will probably need to start over with that too.

I have an Olympus E-600 and just bought the T4i yesterday at QVC (Today's Special Value). The reviews seem good. It was a good deal and I know I can easily return it.

I'd love to hear what the peas have to say too.

They say 7d is great for sports. I am thinking of going with the 60d for its lower light capability and longer battery life. But I am starting to second shoot weddings so the low light capability is a must have and my budget is not at a Mark 5d yet. Anyway I question why the t4i is discontinued there was rumor of it crashing a lot more than other cameras. Amom23 let me know if you have any trouble. I really want the 70d but it just won't be here soon enough. video on t4i vs 60d this guy seems straight forward

Where is it that said it would be out this month? I was finding things saying August since it was not out in March.

Thanks Deb I will wait to buy the 60d after that. I want to know that Canon got it right on the 70d but need an upgrade by mid May. I have a wedding to second shoot and don't want to get something not tried and true until its got reviews.

So will the price drop on 60d be worth waiting the month after the 70d comes out?

I gave up on the waiting and ordered the 60D today.
