The articulating screen argument could go either way. .. .

Isn't the purpose of it being articulating so it can go either way ;)

OP .. seriously I can't persuade you not to do it, so just do it .. you know you want to, you won't be disappointed.

It will keep you up at night learning all of its functions, the 7D is completely outdated I mean come on! Haven't you read the rumors? 7 is an ugly number. =D

"FYI I have the 18-55 IS and 55-250 IS"

Don't you dare upgrade anything before your lenses. Get yourself an 80 1.8 and a sigma 50 1.4

Do it man - I too agonised but then I was coming off some decent glass (the 70-200 f4 IS and then later the 15-85) when I found that my 500D just wasn't quick enough for sport (cricket mostly).

Took the plunge and never looked back. It is a great camera . . .

Cheers

FWIW, the AF is the only thing that'll frustrate you. But with enough practice, you'll realize that exactly is one of the reason of a 7D purchase. Its just awesome!

(That's not very helpful for your cause. Sorry.)

noise and softness compared to a 40D and out classed by the 5D2

I have an XSi, and now I want to sell it and get a 7D. Someone talk me out of this please. I want it for the video, and just to buy a new camera because its been a few years. I don't want another rebel, and if I'm going to upgrade I might as well skip the 60D and go straight to the 7D.

Can someone list all of its flaws or something? I don't want to have to commit this much money, but I'm compelled to for some reason.

7D is overrated... and a poser camera.

(of course I'm kidding) :D

Personally, one very good reason I don't want an SLR video is that I simply don't like the way you have to hold a photo camera, SLR or P&S, to record video. Simple as that and for that reason, I'm out.

I convinced myself not to upgrade by asking my brain "how good of a photographer are you? <not very> Do I need more then a Rebel? <no..> So would I be better off getting another lens or going to a workshop? <yes..>" and now I might be buying a new lens and going to a workshop instead. :D

LOL, I feel much the same, although I have a 550D. I want the 7D for micro adjust (to help my focus OCD :() and the better AF.

Sanity is prevailing, but only barely...

Agreed! (Look at my Sig). :) Although if you are sticking with crop get a Sigma 30 instead of the 50. You should sell your XSi, buy a camcorder and a used 40d/50d for a nice little low cost upgrade. Although I found no real IQ difference from XTi to 40D, the 5D was the first "wow" upgrade. However the ergonomics and AF/speed are worth it alone. I have not used a 7D but the images I see look pretty good.

I can't help you :( I've had a XS for 1.5 yrs, and I've decided I will be upgrading to the 7D. As much as I love 99% of the features of the 60D as well, the 7D feels sooo natural in my hands.

I had the opposite experience to you... went from a 1000D (XS) to a 50D, but it was big and clunky. 7D is bigger and heavier still. 60D is just right :)

7D has a lovely viewfinder though...

Get a camcorder first as that is what you wife wants and if you get any dslr, you will be wrong..;)

Glass and maybe a used body like a xxD depending on your budget. You could always sell xxD here or Ebay and then upgrade to 7D, 60D or newer, etc.

I wanted the convenience of auto focusing video like on my p&s & camcorder on my dslr as I'm not making pro type movies. I would love for that to be available on a Canon and sure it will be, sooner than later, as Sony's A55/33 now have that video capability.

Not possible, you will buy it.

But first, as others have said, get better lenses. And at least one prime.
