It all depends on how much you want to ellivate your game. I wasn't happy with my 7D when I jumped from the 50D to the 7D. It doesn't do well in low light conditions like a lot of high school gyms. There is a lot of noise when you get above 1600. Ijust recently got the 5D III and it night and day to the shots I am able to get with that camera. I can shoot at 6400 with minimal noise. I can get up to 10000 and the noise is the same as my 7D. I don't know how the new 6D does for sports, but it's only a few $100 more. Don't know how it performs with high ISO. The frames per second may be its only draw back if you use burst to shoot sports. I don't so it would work for me. I can say you will love the lens. I use it to shoot all of my basketball shots.
Agree, if you want to drop $3000 plus on a body, the 5dmkiii does a fantastic job. I still don't understand the noise thing, people say the 50d is horrible, I shoot upto 3200"and am happy, and I believe the 7d does a better job? I am going to pick one up in January and will find out, I figure for $1100 for a new 7d is worth a try. I just can't justify over $3000 for a body unless you are making money on them, but everyone spend the $$ differently. I go to aruba twice a year, so go figure.
