I currently shoot with my trusty 30D. I am thinking it is finally time to bump up. I am interested in the 7D and the 60D. I primarily shoot sports and my kids' events. I am not worried to much about glass though I would get the 28-135 IS kit lens either way. Anything? Let me know and thanks!

The 60D comes with the 18-135 IS EF-S lens as a kit, not the 28-135 EF mount that ships with the 7D. Not sure which one is better, although I do like being able to wider on the crop body.

I am very happy with my 60D, and have captured a lot of fast motion subjects with it. It is somewhat different ergonomically from the previous XXD cameras, whereas the 7D is probably closer in that regard. The main standout feature that the 60D has that the 7D doesn't is the swivel screen. If you don't care about that, the 7D has all the bells and whistles as far as advanced AF, etc.

I shoot a lot of sports. The 7D would be a good choice for that venue. I went with the 7D and love it.

However, the 60D would probably do a good job too.

They'd both work, what kind of sports do your kids participate in? If slow (golf, yoga, etc) the 60D would work well, if fast (basketball, soccer, etc) the 7D would be my choice.

I'm seeing a $700 difference between the 60D and 7D with a 18-135 lens. If that $700 isn't a big deal for you, then by all means get the 7D.

If it is, however, I'd say get the 60D, 85 1.8 ($400), and one of the wider primes. Having fast lenses for child events where the lighting is generally terrible is a pretty good idea. You don't have any wide lenses really, and that might be a good focal length to cover
