I had this choice last year and went for the 70-200 f4IS rather than upgrading to 7D. I had an old 75-300IS at that time and the difference between that and the 70-200 was outstanding. I use the 70-200 much more than I thought I would. That said, I don't shoot any sports, therefore all the AF advantages of the 7D are meaningless for me. Secretaly I'm betting that the 60D is around the corner and I'll consider that when it comes out.

My advice therefore, get the 70-200, the completely different range from what you've got at the moment will be more of an eye opener than a 7D. Which ever decision you make though, you'll probably want the other within a month!

The better AF is not just about speed....it provides for quicker and more accurate focus in low light. I find the 7D superb....better than my old 1Ds2!
