Canon also announced the T5i Rebel and I am already being asked what the differences are between the 2. Well not much:

– The T5i has the 3-10x digital zoom found in the Canon Rebel T3i, that the Canon T4i did not.
– Different finish
– Scene Mode added to the Mode Dial

And as far as I know, that is about it. If I hear otherwise I will post.

The gist of it is, unless you really, really want that 3-10X digital zoom, a T4i will be just about the same and you will probably save some money.
