Thinking about upgrading my 60D to a refurbished 7D. With the CLP and the current 20% off sale, I think I can get the 7D for $775.

Best guess on useage would be as follows:

Outdoor Sports - 50%
Indoor Sports = 20%
Travel Pics (landscape and general interest) - 15%
Kids (portrait and candid) - 15%

Is the 7D a good upgrade from the 60D for what I would use it for? I know the AF is better and the FPS in burst mode are higher. Will there be a noticeable difference in high ISO performance?

No, there isnt a noticeable difference betwen the 60D or the 7D in terms of ISO performance. The ISO performance is basically the same. THe 70D is a little bit better with low light, but still doesnt compare to the full frame cameras like the 6D and the 5D Mark III.

Also, you will have to swtich from SD cards to Compact flash cards for the 7D if you choose to purchase one.

Since it appears you are doing more in sports, the 7D would be just right for you since the 7 has the capability of 8fps.

I wish that were the case but the discounts are not stackable and cannot be combined. You can get the 7D for 20% discount ($959) through present refurb sale or $959 with 20% discount through CLP.

Well, in that case, I would buy one of the many used ones on here or on FM if it's a reasonable upgrade.

I had a 7D,sold it and picked up a 60D(thought I was going to shoot less sports, but wrong), sold it and currently have a 7D.....ISO performance is the same. What you will find is the FPS gives you more great shots, along with better, faster focus.. What I mean by that is I shoot a lot of basketball, and fast breaks, lay ups you get some great shots that with the slower FPS of the 60D I missed.....this was for college basketball....I still got great pictures from the 60D, but for sports, the 7D is great.

Maybe consider a 70D also? 7D is 8fps, 70D is just behind with 7fps. 70D's AF is also very very similar to 7D.

I have a 70D for sale, just in case!

Heya,

I'd try and get a 70D as an actual upgrade in all ways.

Very best,

If you do any video, consider the 70D.
