For me it is the fact that it turns my 70-200mm f2.8 into a... 70-200mm f2.8. I much prefer the 1.6 crop factor of the 7D even though it is a lesser camera in almost all other areas. Now when Canon can develop and bring to market a 100-300mm f2.8 for $2000 I might be inclined to get a FF camera.

Disagree without being disagreeable

Thats hardly a fair complaint about the Canon 5d III specifically as the OP was considering waiting for the 5D IV too. That is a full frame VS crop issue (actually an issue of lens specification) so not very sporting to list it here.

+1.  If pixel density is what he wanted, stay with 7D or get 7D II when it's launched.  Otherwise for those willing spend more on longer lens, then the FF combo (although it's bigger/heavier) is much better than crop in IQ.  Get Sigam 120-300/2.8 OS Sport that is still $3500.
