wrong forum?

anyway... buy a 85mm f/1.8 and learn to enjoy the DOF of primes. It's much nicer than your 50mm and you can spend the rest on girls, drinks and friends.

Hello,
I currently have the following photography equipment:
Canon 500d (t1i)
Canon 50 mm-f. 1.8 fixed
Canon 18-55 mm (stock lens)
Canon 70-300 mm 4-5.6 (is usm)
Canon speedlight 430ex II

I am having a terrible time deciding between a canon 7d body, or a canon lens of some type. I have around $1500 to spend, so please if you can give me your opinion and if you choose the lens, please put the model of lens you think I should get!(remember that it does not have to be canon branded)
