As did I.
I got a pretty fast response and tracking. Items arrived earlier this week.
|02-11-2013 02:20 PM|
I received this response:
We will send this out to you. -buydig
I also received order confirmation, saying that zeikos filter and dust blower have been shipped.

Did you ever receive the extras? I got this deal and am in the same boat. Also, the included bag might do ok for packing my lunch, but seems like pretty poor protection for a dslr. I had hoped it would be enough to get me by for awhile, but I ended up ordering a lowepro from amazon as soon as I inspected it.

I purchased mine during the first sale a few weeks back. Got the camera/lens/bag last Saturday.
Still waiting on the blower and lens filter, contacted BuyDig and am awaiting a response. Not a huge deal, but a bummer there is no sign of the rest of the items.

|alison03||I checked my serial number from the last BuyDig sale and it is not one of the recalled cameras.|

I heard the recall was from a while ago and most grips were replaced. I guess it is possible that buydig kept theirs in a warehouse and did not send them out during recall but that would be bad business and I would be suprised if that was the case.
The serial numbers will let you know. Any readers buy a t4i in the past 6 months that was affected by recall and needed grips replaced?

are you representative of buydig ?

If you need to cancel the order, please refuse the delivery from FedEx so that the package can be returned to us and we can process a full refund back to your account.

FYI: Recall T4i
|02-04-2013 10:05 AM|
For a rookie like me the image quality between the t3i and the t4i or the k5 for that matter is negligible.

|bikehigh||Offered someone on CL this 18-55mm for his 40mm stm but he won't take even trade. Then I looked at Amazon prices: $200 for kit lens vs. $150 for pancake. Should I up the original offer?|

Now if you are talking about t3i vs t4i then not as big of a difference but still a difference.
The ones that stood out for me was t4i(5fps) shoots a little faster than t3i (3.7fps). Better auto focus...though I have heard some say you do not notice a difference unless you get an STM lens for the t4i. The t4i also supposed to produce better low light pictures.
Really depends what you are looking in a dslr. You may find a t3 or t3i to be good enough and can save some money.
But t4i may also offer functions that you will find usefull and has more current technology (ie touchscreen, digic 5). It up to you to determine if you can justify the price difference to yourself.

The Pentax probably wins.
Unfortunately, it's not nearly that simple. You're then embedded in the Pentax lens system, with their ergonomics, and their upgrade path. If all you want to do is take pictures with the kit lens, you'll be fine.
If you want the 100mm macro lens referenced above, though, you're going to pay 60% more for the Pentax equivalent. If you accrue some lenses and then decide you really want a higher speed body because, say, you've gotten into sports shooting... you're almost completely SOL. If you want any kind of a sophisticated flash system, you don't have one.
More importantly, ergonomics are a personal preference. I really dislike the ergonomics of the cheap Canon bodies - I much prefer the way Nikon does things. My coworker next to me? Never liked all of the buttons on the Nikon cameras. It'd be better if you could go pick up each body and see which one you like best.
So just be aware of what you're looking to do. Like I said, if what you want to do is press the big button and take pictures with what came in the kit, either one will be great. If you want a sustainable upgrade path to learn and grow in photography, though, you're buying into a different type of equipment depending on the brand you select.
