Just thought I'd update---I got on Twitter and searched for the T6i and anytime anyone asked a question about it or said they were buying one I chimed in with a 140-character review. In less than an hour Canon had sent me a label to send the camera in--I still ended up paying to pack it to ship, but for $25 or so it was worth it. It turns out the autofocus WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. I feel vindicated. However, I have the camera back and I'm still not loving it and I still think the battery life is crap. I'm still going to be shopping for a smaller, more manageable camera. Thanks for the advice.
