We currently use the Canon T3i, is it worth the upgrade to the T5i or should I just upgrade to the 7D or 5D? Is there much of a difference between T3i and T5i?

I’m still using the Canon 50D. It seems the newer cameras are no longer using compact flash cards. Those cards seems a lot easier to use and seem more reliable.

Why
don’t you publish prices also in €?
It is funny that anybody from EU who read tests of yours, must look for prices elsewhere. Is it so difficult to get prices in € from http://www.ebay.de ?

Good review, agree with almost everything, but you imply auto focus in video mode requires the new stm lenses. I bought body only, and it works fine with all my lenses - auto-focusing in video mode if af is selected on the lens. I also have found the touch screen much more useful than I ever expected. And the two special “scn” settings which do a kind of auto hdr have also been very useful at times. I actually set out to buy a second 550D to supplement my current one and to save me having to change lenses between my two most frequently used ones - 70-200 2.8 and 17-55 but at a pawn shop I lucked onto a 700D with a Tamron lens, bought it and sold the Tamron and ended up with a 700D body (with two batteries) for less money than I expected to pay for a used 550D. It’s mint. And of course the batteries, chargers, grip etc are all fully interchangeable. The 17-55 tends to live in the 700D now because that’s what I mostly film the grandkids with. The 70-200 lives mostly on the 550D. I’m absolutely rapt in the combination.

Alissa, some of my comments above will already answer yours. Dollar for dollar I wouldn’t recommend upgrading. But if you were buying today, the 700D has some specific advantages.
