Get glass and preferably EF mount or 3rd party equivalent. This way "if" you buy a 2nd (FF) body or sell the 7D the change will be seamless.

Better off getting glass at this point IMO.

It depends on whether you want to collect equipment or take photographs.

If you want the equipment, get the equipment. If you want to take photographs, get the glass and take photographs. Do what makes you happy.

Sounds like your targeting for a FF body. IF this is the case buy lenses appropriate for a seamless change.

I do find that with a 7D/zoom combo vs. 5dc/zoom you can see a difference in IQ...quite noticeable to my eyes.

Bodies are tools. You choose tools for specific applications. The universal tool would be the 7d. Slow moving subjects/portraits I'd go 5dc. On print....who cares both will look great.

+1

If you are planning to go FF, then do it now, if you can, otherwie you will be buying lenses based on your current, crop, needs and will probably go through reorganzing your lenses, once again.

24mm is a LOT different on a FF than it is on crop. 70-200 is a lot different...etc...etc.​.
