    You can also buy from somewhere with a liberal return policy. If you buy from B&H, for example, you'll get two weeks to change your mind (provided you treat it with kid gloves).

    You can definitely get a non-full-frame camera and, for example, the Sigma 10-20mm for significantly less than a full-frame camera. Do you need the field of view of an 8-12mm lens on a 35mm camera,...

    Clearly your standards aren't very high. The T2i has a rather mediocre pentamirror finder.

    As for the rest of your post guessing about who I am.... uh, sure, man, whatever.

    That shadow isn't coming from light bounced off of the ceiling. It's coming from some non-diffuse light to the left of the camera.
