if you have moved up to a FF from a cropped sensor have you noticed your pictures being better? Do you have less throw aways? I am a hobby shooter but have the funds to make the switch, of course I will keep my 7D.
Just my opinion ....
My first digital camera was a .8mp Sony floppy disk camera (for those that remember what a floppy disk is ) I got some great photos with that having jumped from film to digital and I learned a lot and much quicker than when using film. Jumped to a 2.1mp Sony ... thought that was a major jump and also learned a lot with that upgrade. Next was my Canon 10D ... HOLY CRAP! what a difference and I actually thought "Not sure I can handle it!?!?" BUT, while there was a major learning curve, what I shot, certainly pleased me much more than any film or digital camera I had previously.
Having said that, I honestly don't think it's "only" the upgrade in camera bodies but what I want to try and what I do to work toward getting the best results I can, no mater which body!
I have a 5DMKII and it gives me great photos but I also have a 7D and will not give that camera up. Results? I like them both but each does things different. Dogs ... we have at least 8 Labs here, usually more and it is a big part of what I play with my camera for and 90% of the time I go for the 7D ... even inactive Labs move alot! Landscapes, 5DMKII though I also like the 7D at times. Portraits, 5DMKII for sure though I have shot a wedding with the 7D and it was fine (prefer the 5DMKII).
I feel most upgrades by me are a matter of looking forward to improving small things I think I have learned and done with my previous cameras but, while the 7D and the 5DMKII are different camera bodies, I really don't mind which one I bring with me for just about anything I want to shoot. Sure, FF is great but IMHO Crop shots are not something to do away with ... I like having a choice of both!!!
My advice ... Master your 7D, save up and then get a 2nd (FF) body!!!
