Dear all,

I have been reading the CANON forums for a while with a lot of interest. I am really impressed by the number of comments and the frequency that are being added. You can really learn a lot! This is my first time that I participate with an issue that is bothering me.

I've recently upgraded my 40D's lens collection, with the 17-55 F2.8 IS. I am extremely pleased with this lens.

I'am dealing with a pretty difficult decision at the moment: what should be my next upgrade step? 7D or 70-200 F2.8 II IS lens? I mainly use the camera for photos and I can live without the video capability for a while. I realise that I would eventually purchase both items, but in your opinion which one should come first?

Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

You don't mention what you shoot. Yes, the 7D is a better camera (although I still use the 40D as my backup crop and am still pleased with what comes out of it) and as a better tool can help make the job of 'getting the shot' easier. However, will the long lens help you in what you shoot? Then that's what you ought to get. BTW, yes the 17-55 is an awesome lens and I'm not surprised you like it.
