    The 7D is in every way better than the 50D. Besides video, it gets a bump in resolution and about a 1 stop bump in usable ISO (with NR, you could easily get away with 6400, and 3200 is downright good looking). It's also got wireless flash control, weather sealing, super fast 8fps burst rate, and significantly better AF modes and selection, among other things.

    I've had a 50D since March of last year and recently got myself a 7D. As much as I loved my 50D, I haven't touched it since upgrading.

    Is the 7D worth it? Yes.

    Depends what you shoot.

    I went with a 7D over the 50D

    Keep it as a second body. I'm going to be doing a bunch of high school football games in the fall, so I'm going to put the 70-200 on the 7D and 17-55 on 50D.

    i shoot mainly sports. paintball specifically so the burst mode would definately be an advantage. right now i have a canon rebel xs so i would upgrade to one of the 2.

    It doesn't matter...as soon as you buy, something "better" will always come out... They are both good cameras.

    I agree totally with this.

    And you could wait for a 60D...but its not gonna have the same price tag the 50D has today.

    And product line separation says it won't be as good as the 7D. Plus, no concrete details have even been confirmed yet, much less any release date. Who knows when it will get here.

    Im debating this exact scenario .... 7D or 50D .... my question is ..... (not taking your thread away, but thought it would be informative to go over) ... isnt the 50D FF and the 7D crop?

    Huge difference?
