This lens is not a Pro Lens, but it is everything which you will need which you can use as a walk-around, all round lens, for this budget. From wide angle to telephoto, this is a great lens, and it gives real sharp pictures. The lens is definitely a great buy for the price - Kit lens is really in lesser price, and is much superior in terms of reach in comparison to the other kit lens - 18-55.Good work Canon[...]

Got it and charged the battery....popped it into the camera and turned it on....NOTHING!!! No even a blink so a different battery was charged and placed in the camera....same result. It was sent back so hopefully the next one will work!

Great camera and in the exact if not better conditon listed on the site.
I bought this used from Adorama as a backup body & as usual Adorama came through with a used camera at a good price & great condition.
Perfect starter for HD Video production- on par with more expensive models in the Canon line. I also used this camera in studio photography, and this camera produces some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen- excellent resolution!
I moved up from a Canon XTi with the Digi-2 processor. Nice camera. But the T2i with Digi-4 has all the speed and 18 MP resolution I need. And it is very reasonably priced. I have two of them now, one with a long lens, the other with my 17-50 Tamron zoom. My pics have been published and I even get paid for shooting now and then. Of course, don't expect a 7D (superfast continuous sport) or 5D (superb quality) with this camera, but for the money this is a great value. Use great lenses and you will very satisfied with image quality.
I bought this for my husband before our honeymoon. He has been into photography for some time but never really worked with a dsrl. He caught on quick with this camera and has taken some wonderful shots! Hiking during our honeymoon he got GREAT pictures far and up close (and not having to switch out the lens was key). Traveling on boat and while driving we captured crisp clear landscape pictures. I definitely recommend.
This is the first DSLR that we have owned, coming from a Sony Compact camera. There is a world of difference in the capabilities of the camera vs a point and shoot. My only "complaint" is that when in sport mode (or other rapid fire shooting) when you are saving the pictures as RAW+ JPG, you can get maybe 10, then you have to wait for it finish transferring to the card. Now I have a Class 10 high speed card, so it has to do with the buffer in the camera. We use the faster shooting modes, as we have young kids, dog, and the quick shutter speed combined with lots of pictures, will get us a good result. Having the JPG for everyday pics but the choice of using RAW for the really good pictures is great as well. Otherwise, this is a great camera, and it is only a minor gripe. My wife loves the camera and she just leaves it in Auto mode most of the time. I try to use the more advanced features, so it has something for everyone.
With the introduction of the Canon T4i, the price drops for both the new and slightly used T2i cameras, making them that much better a buy for the would-be photographer. Also, since it supports both the Canon EF and EF-S lenses, it makes an excellent back-up for the serious shooter.
The bundle with 18-135 mm is awesome, much better than the 18-55 you find everywhere
I have used this camera for numerous outdoor shots, each of them have turned out splendidly. This camera can do a lot, but it is not too complicated for a beginner to use. Each time I use it, I discover a new reason why I like it. For example, ISO and aperture settings are great in low light; lens options for manual focus or auto focus; and lots more!
The T2i powers up quickly and is essentially ready to acquire focus the instant you flip the power switch. Sensor cleaning has been relegated to shutdown instead of startup as the default, which makes more sense. Studio timings produced 0.02 second shutter lag times, and 0.18 seconds for AF acquisition. Shooting in the field, I felt using only the single center point for AF was slightly quicker than allowing the camera to use a number of points in auto AF. The center point is the only cross-type in the nine-point AF system, which may account for the perceived speed advantage.
