As you have a good selection of L lenses already, and you're obviously happy with the focal length of the lenses you have then I'd suggest you upgrade to a high end body. A nice 5D MkII or MkIII or a 7D if you want the reach of a crop body all the time. Keep one of your existing bodies and treat yourself to a nice full frame body, the IQ will be amazing.


EOS 5D MkIII, EOS 70D, EOS 650D, EOS M, Canon 24-70 f2.8L MkII, Canon 70-200 f2.8L IS MkII, Canon 100 f2.8L Macro, Canon 17-40 f4L IS, Canon 24-105 f4L IS, Canon 300 f4L IS, Canon 85 f1.8, Canon 50 f1.4, Canon 40 f2.8 STM, Canon 35 f2, Sigma 150-500 OS, Tamron 18-270 PZD, Tamron 28-300 VC, 580EX II Flash, Nissin Di866 MkII Flash, Sigma EM 140 Macro Flash and other bits.

Thanx to all who responded. I ordered a 7D. One of the XTi's is giving up the ghost. I think Issac may have been too hard on it. I am expecting the 7D to do better!

Glass and lighting always. Bodies are almost irrelevant today. Unless you shoot sports or mission critical photojournalism any body is more then good enough.

This for sure!

Alan (Amfoto1) unfortunatly as a disabled single parent, with a daughter who is showing a huge potential (as in reaching junior national squad level standards and needing about £2500 worth of new (second hand) kit) in a sport with zero sponsorship or support. So no nice new (or second hand) lenses coming my way. Been considering one of the Sigma xx-500 OS lenses. But thats ok as I'm more than happy when she's happy; and I can always hire a lens for those times I really can't do without it, the 100-400 is only about £80 for a three day hire with insurance and delivery.

To the OP enjoy your new 7D I'm sure you will like it. The xD/xxD control layout with the rear dial is much better than the buttons on the xxxD cameras. I went from a 300D to a 20D earlier this year, and I love the new control layout.

the 7D is a good upgrade, especially if you shoot a lot of sports/action

A good picture is enhanced both by a good body and lens but none is more important than the talent of photographer using them.
If you ask me the priority:
Person > Glass > camera.

I have only L-lenses, because of that, I'll choose body.
Having a long run to FF, next year I should be at the finish.
