You have an outstanding camera body. Keep it, save your money and work on your skill. Way too many people are in that 'will the next body help my images' cycle. An artest can take a crapy camera and make art. Just my .02 cents.

well keep in mind that this is so not the reason why i'm having this dilemma..

18-55IS, 28-105USM, 50 f/1.8, 60 f/2.8,

I wouldn't even compromise on the full frame versus crop-only lenses. Get what makes the most sense for your photography with the camera and budget you have. If that's EF-S (i.e., crop) lenses, then so be it. You can always sell your lenses later if it comes down to it. Or you can keep them, and your crop camera, for a backup if you get serious enough about it that you start a business around it.

Keep in mind that there's some ultra sharp glass out there for crop cameras these days (such as the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS), so it's possible to take full advantage of the resolution of modern crop cameras.

This IS in fact true. The Canon EF-S 17-55 IS has to be one of the best lenses I have ever used. I have an "L" lens also. The IQ and quality of the 17-55 Canon is among the best and it's a "crop lens" being an ef- "S" Also being a fixed 2.8 I will be able to sell it fairly easily if I ever feel the need.

I have the feeling I will keep my 7D for a LONG time as a back-up. Even if a person goes full frame it would be nice to have a camera which will extend the reach of any lens and shoot 8 frames per second. That 7D is very handy :) and some crop lenses are good. (but watch out because that's where Canon and Nikon put their junk too......i.e. 18-55, 18-200...etc...)

Sorry about getting off topic Autonomous. I would not get a 5D in your situation.
