What exactly is it that you need to do that your 7D can't do?

Do you want a marginal improvement for $1k or a significant improvement for $3k?

The 7D2 isn't out yet, and it is not very clear what the performance will be.

If you just want some redundancy, then consider the SL1. When you are shooting the 7D, the SL1 is the backup. But you could use the SL1 when you don't need 8 frame/sec and want to carry less. Then put the 7D in the trunk, and it is your backup.

It's fun spending other people's money.

If you want better IQ buy 5dmkII or 6D. If you are totaly satisfied with the IQ of 7D, and are not in need of even better AF, Wlan etc... well, then buy a 70D and use it as a second body, or you buy a used 5dMKII (wich is about the same price). And then put all the money left on great lenses. Body improve a little, an better lens is a gigantic loop into greater images.

Better body only makes sense if you have good lenses to put on them. My priority is: 1. Good lens (es). 2. Good light equipment 3. Then I start looking at a new body.

If you are happy with the 7D, get the 7DII. I'd take the 5D3 over the 1D4.

You mentioned that one of your genres is portraits. A larger sensor would make sense for that, although you can certainly do portraits with an APS-C sized sensor, as you know. There are a few photographers who have both an APS-C and a 35mm sensor. This gives them more flexibility. It does seem to me that those who have both tend to gravitate to favor one over the other. I'm not in that camp. I skip generations. So I stick with APS-C. The new camera becomes my primary and the old the secondary. One of the things that I do is take portraits of rehabilitating wild animals that don't particularly like humans and have big teeth. So the extra reach of the APS-C is a benefit. In the end, it's your decision whether a larger sensor would serve you well.

Thanks for all the replies. I'm thinking 7d ii or 5d iii just depends how well 7 ii performs. ... like having that extra reach and fps when I do sports
