I tried asking this in the T3i thread but never got an answer so maybe someone here has an opinion:
Anybody with reliability experience with this camera in dusty conditions? I'm looking for something I can take on a couple month motorcycle trip this summer, so it will see some harsh conditions (though I'll obviously do my best to protect it). I figure at this price I won't be super upset if I destroy it. I'm open to (and would appreciate) any other recommendations also.
I will also be taking a point and shoot for quick access and real dirty areas, but there will be plenty of times I am sure I will want a much better camera with lens (majority of shots will be outdoors). It has been quite a few years since I've looked at all for cameras, but this one seems to have great reviews and should do everything I could ever want.
