Here is one of many reviews that agree with my position:
Maybe you should find a new hobby, as you obviously aren't cut out for photography.

I still can't decide whether you're a troll or just completely ignorant.

Even border to border performance, good resolution, etc. It's not perfect, but you definitely get more than your money's worth. By all accounts, it's regarded as good enough. Plus, for a beginner, it's a great lens to learn on until he or she knows what to buy next.
Second of all, the 50mm f/1.8, while pretty optically impressive for its price, has bokeh that's downright atrocious for portraits. Once he is ready to step up, there are better options, as he deserves to buy a keeper lens. Also, the 50mm can't replace the 18-55mm, as it's too long for most shooting except portraits.

I'm versed in Photoshop/Illustrator (flyers, invitations, etc.), but never took the dive in photography, lol.
For a used T3i w/ EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens Kit for $479.95....would that be a good price for a T3i? I only ask because I'm not too sure of the history of pricing (i.e. some tablets were $100-200ish cheaper during Christmas)

You do NOT need to go with a 7D. Telling someone that wants an introductory-level DSLR to get Canon's best non-full frame camera is heavyhanded trolling. And the 7D for $1,800 is highway robbery anyway, as B&H, Adorama, etc. all have it in the $1,400-$1,500 range.
As for shopping, just go to B&H and get the T3i. The T2i is old enough that it's no longer readily available, and if you don't know whether you need the T3i or T4i, get yourself the older/lesser model. It will work just as well for you, and you should spend the savings towards additional gear you're going to need with any camera setup. This is just over $630, but that's because it comes with lens:
And if you click on "Click Here To Save $30 on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Software" just to the right of the photo of the camera, then you get Lightroom 4 for $90. It's Photoshop, so it is great for editing photos, and it also does things like tagging photos, importing and organizing photos, etc.

I'm not sure which planet you come from where the 7D is $1800. It has sold for $1100--brand new--from several retailers in the past. The current 2nd-hand price for a 7D is between $800-$850.
He may as well go with a T2i, but I'd just recommend picking up the original 5D--which can be had for around $500 now. It's great for landscapes/portraits. Remember, with landscapes, you typically want to go WIDE--APS-C has a 1.6x crop factor. Then you can sink $100-$200 into a decent video cam (5D) lacks video recording capability.
