In reply to ppage, Feb 5, 2013

Yes, ppage, this is exactly my dilemma:
I do own the EF-S 10-22 and the EF-S
17-55 and love both. Nevertheless, at
the same time I *long* for FF for its
smoother gradations!

But I'd never "upgrade" my 60D to
the 7D because the latter's advan-
tages over the former (mainly the
sophisticated AF-system and the
faster fps-bursts) are of little to no
importance for *my* photography
at all. (I do mainly architecture
and city-scapes).

Therefore, I will most probaly "bite
the 6D bullet" soon.

If I had to choose between a 7D and a FF at the same price, I'd go with the 7D. When I bought my first DSLR and was trying to decide between Nikon and Canon, the common advice was "you'll change your camera every few years; the big investment is in lenses, so choose a family of lenses and then select the camera." This advice still applies to families of cameras from the same vendor as the EF-S lenses can't be used on a FF camere. Even if a good, feature rich FF camera was available at the same price as the 7D, there is nothing comparable to the EF-S 17-55 or EF-S 10-22 among Canon's EF lenses. This should be at least a minor consideration for anyone trying to choose a camera, it's a big consideration for anyone thinking of upgrading to FF who already owns these very good lenses.
