Well Canon kept announcing that it was coming, but didn't officially release it until June. The only reason we wanted to wait for the newer model was in hopes the video feature was improved on the camera so we wouldn't have to get 2 types of cameras. We ended up going with the Canon Rebel T4i. It arrived a few weeks ago and we are loving it so far. We haven't utilized or trained ourselves in it that much, I'm adding it to my never ending to do list. Our favorite feature is the touch screen display. You can pinch and grab just like with our phones.
With a face like this, I better learn how to use it!
