Upgrade from 450d to T3?
      #5588565 - 12/25/12 02:21 PM

I am wondering if i should upgrade to a T3. Not a T3i, just a T3. Theres some good sales this week and the T3 is in my price range. Im wondering if its even worth the upgrade what with the 450d being so darn good for AP.
New camera or invest the money in a new 300mm lens?
Thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I would go for the lens or something else, not the T3. 450D is a very good camera already.

+1 on the 450D, I think with the T3 you'd step down to a 12 bit ADC. You might try looking for a T2i, but the 450D is sweet spot in the Rebel line.

I believe you are confusing the xs and the t3. T3 is 14bit. That being said the t3 is not a significant upgrade. Spend the money on a lens.

Totally agree with all that's been said. I like my 450D more than my T1i.
