I have had my t1i for over two years now, and it never ceases to amaze me what this camera can do.  From shooting in low light all the way to a fast action sport event.  This camera has never failed me.  I guess the only thing I wish this camera had (which has now been included in newer models) is the ability to auto focus while shooting video.  Otherwise I'm completely happy.
