    Xti To 7d?

    Great idea or no, i have about $1,350 to spend, and thinking of getting a new body; the 7d. I have a lens I'm comfortable with and happy with atm (the 70-300 canon IS), Am I making a mistake by buying a body and not a lens? I really prefer a body but dont want to make a mistake.
