I did it.... I haven't missed the 8fps yet... but when shooting autocross, I did miss the crop factor... my 70-200 is much more of a "walkaround" than it was before.. I would never leave the house with just a 70-200 before unless I was heading to a sporting event of some sort... now, I'll grab it just to go walk around the park.... My 35L is a completely different lens now as well.. I have to watch my distance from my subject, or things get distorted... and now, I actually like the 50mm focal length... I was never a fan before.

Why do you need full frame? What's your gear like and do you have lenses that would take advantage of a FF camera?

I upgraded from a 40D to a 5D II 4 years ago but when I owned the 40d, I've prioritized on getting only L lenses and those that would allow me to take full advantage of when I move to FF.

The 7D is a great camera and I would much rather get more L lenses than upgrade at this point. If money is not an issue for you, then by all means get the latest and greatest if you think that will make you a better photographer.

Yes. Even in the first batch, which I have, it is not as bad as people made it seem to be. If you're doing astronomy photography and turn the LCD light on, you may get the wrong exposure. Nothing major and they've fixed it on all the new batches.

I picked up the 5d3 coming from a 7d. Other than the fps and crop factor which I haven't missed so far it's a pretty sweet body...

My 5D MIII arrived yesterday and after a very short amount of time using it, I'm fairly certain my 7D will be up for sale soon!

I sold my 7D for the 5DIII and so glad I did. The 5DIII has just blown me away.

Why do you feel you need the upgrade?
Whats holding you back?
Do you have the lenses to support FF?

And at the end of the day it is your money spend it wisely.
