Summary: I've used Canon Rebels since their first one hit the market. I picked up this to upgrade from a T2i. The T2i was still functioning well, and is pretty much the same spec wise as the T5i. I wanted a couple of features on the T5i - the touch and flip screen, and the autofocus on video. My expectations have been meet. I did expect a big leap forward and what I got was a camera with pretty much the same specs and behavior but with the enhancements I wanted.
