Upgrade 60d to 7d
Dec 13, 2011

Hi everyone,

I know this topic of upgrade might have come about many a times but I guess when we are spending our hard earned and saved money we need constructive advice before we spend it. As the subject suggests I own a 60d and have had it for a while. I shoot family, friends, and my 4 year old.

When I bought the 60d, I had not enough to afford the 7d, but now I am in a position to get one by part exchanging and adding a bit of money.

I find it is becoming harder to shoot my 4 year old, and difficult to capture his emotions, him playing..... And as much as this might be down to technique I feel the 7d with the less shutter lag and faster af might be the way to go.
I recently purchased a 70-200 f4L IS and have the 17-85 and 85mm f1.8

My trade would consist of the 60d and the 17-85 + money to get body only 7d. I'm seeking some advice please, where if someone who has done the same as I intend to, or can shed some light to my confused mind.

Or should I just stay with the 60d and put the money towards another lens. ie trade the 17-85 for 15-85 and save the rest of the cash for speedlite, .....
Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you
