In fact, find a used T2i with the kit 18-55mm if you want a dslr with video. Otherwise purchase a used Canon EOS 20D (can be had with the kit 18-55mm lens for around $225-$250).
Unless you have a specific reason why you want the T4i, then buy used.

you do realize that this is the newer 18-135mm STM
, which brings Continuous AF during video recording, specifically for the T4i, right?
they didn't just add STM to this lens, the MTF charts on this lens is significantly
better than the older lackluster 18-135mm.
the other STM lens is the 40mm f/2.8.
