If I had to get a 2nd body, it'd be the 7D.
I wouldn't go from a 450D to a 50D. I used to have the 450D and have moved to the 5DMkII (big move for me).
If I had to shoot an event, I'd have a 35L or Sigmalux on the 5dmkii and the 85L or 135L on the 7D.

How about a 1DMKIIN? It has more frame rate, faster blackout time, faster focus, better built, etc over the 50D. And you could get it almost at the same price as a 50D.

how many pixels for the 1DmkII?

It's 8 awesome MP!
And you would want the 1Dmk2N not the just mk2. The N version has some good improvements on it.
Anyhow, I think it would fit your lens line up well as well. It would give you more of a reason to have the 16-35! =)
Anywho! It would give you the bigger body, 10FPS, a huge viewfinder and SUPER fast autofocus. Sooo everything you want!

That would be a used model, since replaced by the MKIII and Now MKIV models. While megapixels might be a method breaking a tie between two similar models of camera, I wouldnt worry about upgrading to a series 1 body from a rebel as 8 megapixels will serve you well and the features of the body will wow you.

Keep the lens, it will hold resale value MUCH better than a body that will soon be kicked to the curb. The 50D is already discontinued. Bodies loose their monetary value much quicker than good glass.

This. It amazes me when people sell off or trade their glass to get a new body. A year from now that lens will likely be worth just as much as it is today, that certainly won't be the case with the body. Heck, some of my glass is worth more now than when I purchased it.

Go check out a 1Dmk3 or 1Dmk4 in the stores to see how it feels in your hands. If you like its size, then you definitely want to go for a 1Dmk2N. Don't worry about the megapixels -- with 8 megapixels of that quality, you can print reasonably large without worry.

If you don't like its size, then the 50D will certainly be a major improvement for you in the areas you want. I like my 50D quite a lot, but find my 7D to be jaw-droppingly good.

I'm going to disagree with the crowd on the lens issue. The lens is just another tool. It's not an investment (though the L series lenses tend to hold their value rather well). If you can accomplish the same task with a less expensive lens and free up the money for other purposes, why wouldn't you?

The question is: how much would you be able to get for your 16-35? You got such a good price on it that you should easily be able to sell it for quite a bit more than you paid for it (the 16-35 costs at least $1400 new in the U.S.) and pick up a different lens with very nearly the same performance and a bit more focal length range, e.g. the new Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS, while also freeing up some cash for other uses.

But all that assumes you're going to stay with crop cameras for the foreseeable future. If you know you'll be making the move to full frame in the relatively near future, you'll definitely want to keep the 16-35 -- it'll become your wide angle lens of choice.

FF it is i indeed the junp everyone wants to do but i have to be honest here.
I don´t do professional photography,i just shoot for fun since i bougth my first p&s thats the way probaly it will continue.
I want something new and i gona study the 7D a bit more because it seems a great camera besides de FF and seems to be future prof and i will keep the 16-35 to landscape a buy a 50 1:8 as a walkaround lens.

I would keep the 16-35, and save up for the upgrade on the body. That is one of the lenses that is on my short list, but every time I think I got a little saved one of my kids needs something, so there goes Dad's toy fund. Your english is also really good, so no worries on it. I work folks frfrom other countries on a daily basis, and wish they had english as good as yours, a lot of times.
