I presently own a Canon T4I , This is my second DSLR, I'm becoming less satisfied with the pictures lately, they just don't have the clarity and sharpness I want, so I have decided it might be time to purchase a new one. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would like a Canon again because I need to keep my lenses $$$$..18-55mm and 70-300mm. Looking for recommendations that these lenses will fit.
Thank you !

Your photos look pretty good to me Brenda but then, my eyes aren't quite what they used to be. As for recommendations, I'm sorry I can't be of any help, as I'm a Nikon convert.

I'm also seeking sharpness. The only advantage in getting a new camera that I can see is better autofocus or speed. If you want to stay with a crop sensor, then the 80D is a good next step.

Another idea is go for a sharper lens. Here's what I've been looking at -- maybe this will help:

Canon 100-300 F5.6 L (no IS)
Canon 300 F4 L IS USM

Tamron 45 VC
Canon EF 24-70 F4 L IS
Sigma 17-50 F2.8 EX DC OS
Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 DC OS
Tokina 12-28 F4 (no IS)

Unfortunately the options aren't cheap ($300-600), but I've read a lot of reviews (cameralabs.com and dpreview.com) and these seem to be good choices.

I'm saving my duckets!

Thanks for your input! SlowWalkers is there any particular reason you switched to Nikon?

Tarage, I will look into the all of the information, interesting Thanks!

I had a Canon SX50 bridge camera and wanted to move up and so did a lot of comparisons between Nikon & Canon and found that the Nikon D5300 suited my needs at the time. Because it was going to be a bit of a leap, I bought second-hand (with 12 month guarantee) and got used to it very quickly but like you now, I felt it wasn't giving me the clarity I thought I should have. It was always in the back of my mind and so eventually, after a load more comparing, I traded in the 5300 and two lenses, which helped soften the blow and bought a new Nikon D750, which seemed to have everything I needed and I'm very happy with it.

Tarage is right, a lot of people say to invest in the lenses and it's good advice. If there's anywhere near you, where you can have a test run, then that would be ideal. For every Nikon user, there will likely be a Canon user, who will say that their camera is best, which I understand but in the end, you want what's best for you, whichever way you go.

(I should add, there are other brands available)

I was in the same situation as you several months ago. I have been using Canon gear for the past 15yrs and had a collection of canon lenses. After a lot of studying and checking out reviews, I made up my mind to make a total switch...to mirrorless. I sold my Canon 70-200L 2.8 for enough money to invest in the Sony A6300. It took me awhile to get acclimated to the menu driven Sony, but I am totally satisfied and my 5D just sits on the shelf gathering dust. I did keep most of my other canon lenses and purchased a very cheap adaptor which gives me the ability to use them on the Sony. I did have to sacrifice the autofocus and use manual focus, but it isn't that big a deal for me. I still have my 1D Mk11, 20D, and a 5D...and I have found that in all of them, they are soft compared to the Nikon or Sony no matter which lens I use. Good luck in your decision and just remember, have fun.

Thanks for everyone's input. It such a big decision, my Partner doesn't understand so I compared it to a tool for him..LOL . I will keep reviewing camera's and info that all of you posted on here.. I still have my present one, which is still good, at least I have a one.

I think a good lens (brand new unused before i recommend) will be the way to go. The DSLR you have should be good at low and moderate ISO. Unless you intend to shoot more in low light. Maybe you can look at a better alternative to replace your 70-300mm range. I do not know about Canon but if its a Nikon, i used to have a crop body and a full frame 70-300mm VR. Sharp as only the centre of the glass is been used.

Yes i saw your photos in your portfolio. Looks like you will need the longer focal range. Just in case you run into shady areas in the nature (like forest) and you will be using the extreme end of the telephoto lens, in that case a cam body that can do clean high ISO shots will help. That should justify an upgrade on the cam body i guess. Another thing is to check if your cam body uses any low pass filters. I heard and read in reviews and reports saying that cams with low pass filters tends to have softer image outputs. Anyway you can search online or clarify all the points i mentioned before agreeing with them.

After looking at your portfolio, I'd suggest a used Canon 60d, or if you can afford it, a new 80d. You seem to like birds, if you can stretch to a 300mm f4, you'll have very sharp images with that. If you live in the USA, KEH gives a six month warranty on used equipment, I've bought a lot through them and I've always been satisfied. And, of course, the most important piece of equipment is a tripod, the heaviest one you can lug around. Also, I know it's a taboo subject, but if you're not happy with the sharpness, downsize the image. A lot of people say you loose detail, but for me, I can't remember the last time I uploaded any images anywhere to anybody without downsizing the picture first. Going to another system is a pain, I've gone through the Sony mirrorless system, dust was a major problem. And, they're too small for me. Now I use a Pentax k-1, and the only lens I have for that is the 50mm macro. I can make a living with just that combo if I only did photographs. But I do have other cameras. Good luck with your choices, I like your portfolio!

Get yourself a decent prime or L lens to replace the budget lenses you use now.. There is no reason a T4i should have photos with less clarity and sharpness. Maybe rent the 70-200mm f2.8 L VERSION II lens for a weekend of wildlife shooting and you'll know what a great sharp images your camera can put out !!!!

It may not be a new camera you need. Every lens/camera body has a sweet spot. This means to me that a camera and lens combo has a spot where they produce the best results. Example, I was shooting with a Canon 7DII. I couldn't figure out why when I was shooting from a bridge over the water, objects that were in distance were out of focus. I read about the sweet spot and by shooting several picture from the same spot at different F stops I found that the lens I was using (Canon 18-135), the best aperture (F stop) was 7.1. Most of my photos are razor sharp now. Try a few test shots and I'm sure you find your best working spot. Of course distance to the subject and other variables can change things. But for the most part, I set my aperture at 7.1 and just walk around with that.

One other thing. If your T4 has multiple focus points, set it to use only the very center focus point. Otherwise the camera will use all of them and try to average them, giving you some of the "softer" results I noticed in your photos.

You would probably get more benefit from investing in a top quality lens rather than a new camera body.
