7D vs T2i

So I'm selling all of my old camera gear (Canon GL1, Rebel 2000 and accessories) and entering the world of HD. Most recently, I had decided that between the 5D MKII and the 7D I would get the latter because of slow motion capabilities, that the frame size is close to that of 35mm film, and that it was significantly less expensive. That is until I've started reading about the Canon EOS Rebel T2i (also known as the 550D).

Marketed as an entry-level DSLR, the video capabilities of the T2i pretty much mirror that of the 7D, but in the realm of still images, the 7D still reigns supreme over the T2i. However, seeing as how I am more concerned about the video aspects of the camera, those advantages don't really pertain to me. What's even more great about the T2i is that it retails at half the price of the 7D at just $799. I bet I can score it off eBay for about $50-100 less if I hunt around.

Here are the specs to the T2i and some links to photos and videos shot with it:

Overall, I think I'm pretty sold on it, so I'm going to hold on to the earnings from my old camera and purchase the T2i! I can't wait to start shooting with it!
