Sports/Action shooting - 7D or 70D
3 months ago

I'm currently using the 50D for the sports shooting that I do.  I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast.  The 50D has provided quite a few years of service but I find I'm needing a little better performance in terms of fps, faster/more accurate focusing, and burst capabilities.  I'm thinking that the 7D would be the logical upgrade, but must admit I don't know a lot about the 70D's capabilities so thought I would query the forumites.  I have no interest in video so that is not part of the equation.

I'm thinking right now of holding on a bit longer to see if the rumored 7DmkII will actually appear, in which case the original 7D would most likely see a price cut.

Thanks for any insight.
