ditch if the $100 bux you'll get for a 10d is the difference, then you aint getting a 7d
There are a couple of main differences between the two. The sensor is the major one to me, and there are some video differences that unless your trying to do professional level video, won't mean anything to you.
I own a 5d and a couple of 5dMII's. I am toying with the idea of adding a 7d, purely for bts ( behind the scenes ) video shooting. It would otherwise get very little use other than as a back up to the back up.
Having said that, that is my POV as a professional ( and I really should have the bigger camera up from the 5dMII ). The 7d is just not professional and the crop sensor makes it a major no go for me. When I got my first 5d and started to shoot full frame again, I felt like my vision had returned. Shooting on a crop frame sensor had dulled my pov and it never seemed 'quite' right. not saying i didn't take some great photos with the 10 and 20 d's but they felt off all the time. full frame is all I will ever shoot again, unless i need the back up.
so, my take on this is, if you have the scratch, get the 5dMII. your 'L' glass will thank you.
