In most cases I would say the same think as every one else glass, glass, and more glass. However, after looking at your gear list may be you should try a 7D. If you want to shoot some fast moving subjects. cause I know how unfast the 5D's are. There is a time and a place for a fast body. It will make your glass so much faster. borrow someone's 1D and try it on your glass. It may have been something your have been missing the whole time. I hope you just take this as my 2 cents only.

screw the 7d. get the 35l. the 7d will be half price before you know it, and a 60d with similar features before too long. and then the 1dmk4, and then the 70d, and then the 5dmk3...

Get the 35L, it will pair up well with your 5DII.

Then again the 7D just doesn't seem to have that pop and IQ that I was expecting from it.

The unmodified Canon 5DII samples made me go "WOW!!!" where the unmodified 7D samples leave me wanting more.

Even 3rd party samples don't seem great to me.

But that's not to say that I have cast judgement unto the 7D.

I would like to try one first for all its option packed speedy glory before I make a choice of what to think of it.

I say go with 35

Personally, I would rather buy 24 1.4 L but 35L definitely more worth it than 7D =)

Op,
Since theres no mention of the type of shooting you do I'd say buy the 35L.

One thing to consider is "IF" the IQ of the 7d is almost close to the 5d classic you will have a "built in 1.6 TC". This will sorta double your lens lineup.

I would love to buy the 5dmkII but at this moment in time i'll buy glass. However since you already have 2 FF bodies buying a crop will be up to your personal style and needs.

IF I had a 5dmkII and a 5D I can see myself become a full frame snob :) but since i own the 50D I do appreciate owning it for fast AF.

I would consider the 24L if I was using a crop body. From looking at the 35L pictures it would seem that the 35L is a favorite over the 24L as far as FF goes.

I'm waiting to see the result of the IQ from the 7D. If it's a big improvement over the 5D classic I'll end up selling the classic and fund the 7D. I'm set on believing that no crop body (1.6) can produce image as good as a FF right out of the camera. I have more keepers from my FF body than my old 40D and XTI.

+1 for waiting to scoop the 7D out. I say give it a couple months, let Canon iron out the bugs and then decide.

35 L

The 7d has the features if you want to shoot fast moving subjects, but I would wait and see what everyone has to say about it first. But it looks bloody awesome by specs.
I looked at a comparison that compared it to the 5d at 3200ISO, it was no where near the quality of the 5d, low noise but ordinary detail. Didn't really look at its low ISO performance as I'm looking for something that performs in low light.
The 40/50d perform well on fast subjects the 50d is pretty good at high ISO, 2000 is good and the focus system locks on everytime. I think the 1d mark2 is still the go for fast stuff and a bit of a bargain these days.

35L... heres why? In the last few weeks the lens has increased in price from 1200-1350/1400 bucks. There are zero in stock and when they get them they fly off the shelf in minutes!!! I have been looking for one for the past 3 weeks and cant find one. Actually in that case... go buy a 7d so I can have the 35L hihihi.

I love my 5D too much to sell it. Besides I don't think any crop body as IQ as good as a FF. The 35L has speed and it great in low lighting and plus it would be great to add it to my collection of the holy trinity. On the other hand I just love how canon develop the 7D. I mean 18mp, 12800 ISO, 8fps, 100% VF 19 point AF system and wireless flash trigger. It's a hard decision and I can only fund one for this year. (I hope)

Then why do you want to pick up a 7D? :p

How about Siggy 30mm 1.4 and the 7D!

Best of both worlds! You get to keep your 5D, you get a great 30mm f1.4 lens, and you get a 7D! :D

I want a 35L. The photos i've seen taken on this forum with it are outstanding. You got an 1D body, and a 5Dm2, grab that lense! + it would fit wonderfully with ur 50/85 Ls xD

Get the 35L. You'll avoid all buyers remorse if there are any issues with the 7D when it finally surfaces.

glass with your current setup. it's a smart, practical buy vs gotta-have-the-latest-impulse buy.

but also take into consideration your needs you have pretty long focal ranges that could benefit for sports or fast moving scenes. write down the pros and cons and anticipate the trade-offs.
