Summary: Have since 2012. Bought it in South Africa and use it in a regular basis. It is my entry camera and I do not think about upgrade, bucause it is just great! I'm still amazed with the quality of the equipment and photos.
Conclusion: I bought my T3I a couple years ago and have had nothing but fun ever since. Now my hobby is 100% taking pictures. I love it. I love learning everything about this camera. I'm so proud after posting a picture to the different social networking sites and friends responding how beautiful my pictures...
Pros: good battery life, Nice features/settings, Quick Start-up time, excellent image quality, Superior build quality, Bright LCD, Solid Operation, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use, you can start right off in auto mode., become a pro from the first time you turn it on!
Excerpt: I am a novice at taking pictures but I am loving my new camera. I have been using my reference guide to learn about all the features. Have taken some pictures of the grandkids and I'm doing pretty good.
