tested both extensively. sigma is pretty much better in almost every way. the issues with sigma are overblown. when shit goes wrong with 3rd party shit people always let their mouths flap about it, but when it's first party they're like "oh, just return or send that shit in for service" which is what you should do with sigma. if you have some focus issues, then send it in for calibration or go to a store where you can actually test one.
there are always terrible copies, bad copies, okay copies, good copies and excellent copies of every lens out there. no two lenses are the same.

in canada we get a 10 yr warranty with it. it was also cheaper than the 28 1.8. pretty much no brainer.

but hey, people will always have their brand loyalties so whatevs.

Why not? Sigma has a shady rep with "bad copies". Idk I just prefer keeping my glass within Canon.


Co-sign...

And the sigma issues are not blown out of proportion. There are waaay to many bad copies of the 30mm out there.

Budget is about 200-350 $$

Currently have a D40 and wanting to upgrade to a D90. Current lenses I've got are 18-55, 35 and 10-20mm, should I just buy the body or get the package with the 18-105mm lens?

Can anybody give feedback on the 600D/T3i? Is it worth it for a beginner or should I stick with the T2i?

If your doing film, t3i, otherwise save yourself like 100-200$ by getting the T2i.
Also check out the Nikon D5100, it has a d7000 sensor and 1080p at 30FPS.

You can also hack the t2i for much better film controls.

Thanks. I'm going to wait for the D5100 to come out and compare it with the T2i since they're not too far apart in price.

Well if your into slightly better image quality and better iso performance, jump on the D5100, it uses the D7000 sensor. The T2i is a a great camera nevertheless.

Get the canon 50mm 1.8. It's very good and very cheap.
This book is quite good, too
