You're right. I would like to make a couple bucks doing this one day and lenses are going to benefit me more at this point.

Ben's points about controls is HUGE. Rebel controls are crap once you use something else.

Are you finding limitations with your XTi? If so, what?

I get a lot of noise in my pictures, even shooting at a 200/400 ISO. Looking for more quality and sharper pictures with less noise. Plus I'm looking for some additional technology such as bracketing photo's.

Want vs need. You can upgrade when you "want." You "need" to upgrade when you outgrow the hardware.

You'll know what the limitations are when you hit them.

Anything that's getting upgraded as "need," must be preceded with "how is my current hardware holding me back?"

Noise is in technique also. You shouldn't have unusable noise at ISO200/400..

Sharpness has a lot to do with the lens.

Your XTI offers bracketing.

I cannot find that damn option for bracketing, ugh.... maybe I need to dig into my manual to look. Maybe I'm being too picky with my noise levels.

But as far as image overall quality, going from an XTi to the T3i. Is it mainly just the MP upgrade?

don't they have better sensors in them?

From the Xti to the T3i, you get a newer processor, and better noise performance. It is probably the same size sensor, however the firmware and the actual camera is a lot more updated. Not to mention the availability of HD video.

I agree, it does have to do a lot with technique. Lenses will give you better sharpness however, the lens will limit your shutter speeds on different situations. If you get a lens with a larger aperture, it will allow for faster shutter speeds with the lower f-stop (bigger aperture). When using a higher f-stop (smaller aperture) then it will force you to use a slower shutter speed which in turn will force you to use either a tripod, or increase your iso. Some people like the noise and use it for an artistic twist, it is just a matter of taste at that point.

I don't think I'd ever out grow my hardware for what I do. Which is a good thing I guess. My problem is I always like to have bigger and better things. I'll see how far this takes me first.

Then that is "want" as opposed to "need," which, there isn't really anything wrong with.

GLASS > BODY... i was told by a nikon pro motorsports photographer a few years ago that the investment should be made on glass long before the invest in a top of the line body. The value in lenses doesn't drop as drastically and quality is always there. Plus Nikon/Canon had new bodys out like once or twice a year it seems. while lenses only get redisgnes and small ones at that every couple of years. From what ive seen anyway

My body is pushing 5-6 years now, maybe I'm just being OCD about it. Just seems like it's old and due for an upgrade, rather than spend money on new lenses.

I just wanted to point it out in case anyone was curious. I guess it was more geared towards assassins post about iso speed more than anything. Not everyone understands the relationship of aperture/shutter speed/iso.

Just because its old doesnt mean it's deteriorated. Just because theres new technology out doesnt mean old tech doesnt work.

The thing is we're gearheads. We want the latest.

I find any info helpful. Especially for a newb like myself. Even if it's basic info it's always good to hear again to burn it into my brain.

Good point! I suppose you're right, I'm just being stubborn haha. I'll probably look into some lenses then.

I think I might rent one for a weekend just for the hell of it. I really want to see the difference for myself.
