Yes, indeed

even the 60d carries some problems, like the need of ud lenses because it can have a chromatic aberration with a 18-135mm lens, i am not saying its a bad camera, because its great dslr, but its not much better than the T4i
 
Nestor (2:54 AM, April 25, 2013)
even this page says that the difference is just 2 points, so why is it an entry level dslr, theres no reason!

What does make it an entry level dslr? I know its not proffessional but its not entry level in my personal opinion, there are some slightly differences with the 60d in image quality, but that´s it, and even this T4i is improving in terms of video recording.

i agree completely dude, i respect the fact that it´s not exactly proffessional, but as you say, it might be an intermediate level AT LEAST, but many people say its an entry level camera just because its part of the rebel series. I mean, being a little funny, i think it should be called t4d, hehehehe. Late news: canon is announcing that the t4i its now part of the D familly and now it will be called t4d. (it would be a great day)

The T4i is an entry level DSLR, this does not include point and shoots, and the T5i was a dissapointment, the only differences are that it has a slightly longer battery life, the 18-55 STM lens but there is no option for an 18-135 STM lens, it has a lower max ISO :( and the price is higher. Personally I am going to get the 60d but I am going to wait because I've heard about a 70d coming out soon. I hope this helped.

I get pretty steamed when the T4i is considered an "ENTRY LEVEL" camera. The T4i does alot more for the average user as well as the professional. I know professionals that prefer the T4i over the 60 simply because it's lighter and does most everything needed for most shoots. I believe the T4i is just as advanced as any other low end so called professional camera and maybe even better. I have just looked at the T5i, again a breakthrough in beyond entry level cameras. Why not consider these intermediete rather than entry because trhey really are more that your typical entry "point and shoot".
