One thing I have noticed after extensive research is that the 7D sensor seems to be much better than the other 18mp sensors even though they are noted to be the same. in fact dcwatch has a good comparison of the 7D and 5D Mark II and there is very little between the two.
This doesn't shock me much. I wouldn't really consider the 5DII an upgrade from the 7D... it's just full frame. If you don't need a FF body (and I don't think you do) I would have a hard time recommending a 5DII over a 7D.
Edit: Getting my posts confused, I was also commenting on a thread where the OP was into sports. I take back my comment about not needing a full frame body...
If you understand what a full frame body would do for you, and have the glass to take advantage of it, it's certainly worth considering, but if you don't specifically need what full frame has to offer, and/or most of your lenses are non-L or even EF-S, the 7D may be a better option.
