My mind is still in state like hovering between the two, 7D or 5D2 :)

dont get either. work hard in your job, save your pennies and dont book a holiday this hear and go get a 5dmk3.

Why would anyone settle for the 5DIII. Save your money and get the 1DX.

Seriously though, thats part of what I meant when I said ask yourself how happy you are with your XSi.

If its good enough for now, then just save up for a 5D3. Unless you simply just cant let yourself spend that much money on a camera body (thats how I felt lol).

* How does using poor equipment make you a better photographer ??

*The camera's just a tool to take pictures with. Whether you focus manually or automatically will have no bearing on how good a picture is.

*So what are you doing differently that you say improves your shots ??

I've recently started shooting with film rangefinders and I would say that it has helped me improve my skills with framing, focusing plus it has helped me appreciate the 'beautiful mistake' shots that I occasionally take, especially out in the street.

a sharp, well focused shot doesn't necessarily mean that it's a great pictures.

i moved from xt to 40D to 5Dc and I'm happy with my gear.
Bought a 5Diii and sold it a week after, while great and a huge upgrade to my 5Dc, the 5Dc is way more than enough for what I shoot (street, landscape, portraits, family gathering).
my everyday camera now a days is my leica m6 w/ 40mm 1.4 lens

Get a 1ds mk2, it's the only camera on here that no-one complains about.

Dude, you are so ridiculous. You're the definition of a fanatic gear-head. Every one of your posts in this thread is "save your money forever and spend the most you can on something you might not need". Get real. Once the next camera comes out you'll be calling people stupid for buying a 5DMK3. And then this BS about using the worst equipment you can find to make yourself a better photographer? I'd ignore everything you say if I was the OP.

i'd get a 5d3 if i was OP. forget the 7d

Then go get one! But you know, the OP says he can't afford but the 7D, so would you care to help him out with the difference ? I sure he would accept.;)

OP, if you can afford a 7D, you should not worry about it- it's a great camera.. Get it, use it, love it.
I would venture to say I would get a 7D over a 60D- there are other differences, especially the AF system- that make it worth the difference in price. I'd take the 7D over a 5D Mark II.. the beauty of it all is- you know what you've got, so the 7D would be a nice step upwards. Don't worry about what you can't afford- it's not worth it. Unless you start to believe the hype or start to think about going FF all of the time- well, just be happy with your decision- and you will find that the 7D is one decent little camera. You certainly won't regret it.

I have had both the 7D and 5DM2. Both are great cameras and excel at their strong points. Sure the files from the 5d are awesome but so are the 7d's if you take the time to learn how to process them. It comes down to budget and intended purpose.

Yes, the 5D has issues, but it's worth it if you want to go full frame for cheap.
