TOPIC: Canon T3 vs T5 - Which should I buy?

Canon T3 vs T5 - Which should I buy? 2 years 2 weeks ago #6287

I found a T3 at Target last month for $150 with a 18-55mm kit lens. I bought a 2nd lens from Wal-Mart, EFS 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II for $250.
I am happy with this camera for now but I am seeing that WM will be selling a combo kit
Bonus 75-300mm lens, bag and 8GB SD card 18 mega pixels 18–55mm IS lens

So, do you guys think it would be worth the extra $50 for the T5 and then sell the T3 and return the lens?
If I sell the T3, I can probably sell if for more than I paid.

The main difference that stands out to me is the T5 records 1080 video but neither has auto focus during video.

I have a trip to Australia planned next month so I think either of these will be better than just buying a P&S for a few hundred bucks.

Agreed. If you need the features then yes its worth it. You would probably notice faster AF and better high ISO.

I actually grabbed a T5i during Black Friday weekend since the Kit lens as STM. The secondary lens does not have IS so it might be sold.

Thanks guys for the input.

not having IS/VR inst bad if you are shooting photos. Just compensate with a faster shutter. That is unless you plan on buying fancy glass
