Agonising decision:
I have a Canon 550D + Canon 15-85 lens + Canon 100-400mm lens + Yognue excellent Rip-off of a Canon Flashgun.
I would dearly like a camera with better(quicker) focus i.e. more then the 550D's 9 Cross focus points for tracking wild life for stills and occasional video (e.g. birds).
The Canon 760D looks good and my 100-400 would still be great though shorter but only 19 focus points.
The Nikon D5500 at similar price gives more 39 focus points but I would have to trade/swap my 100-400!
And what would I replace my lovely all-round 15-85mm lens with?

700D has 9 point AF Cross Focusing. On my 550D only the centre AF is cross. Using servo focus to photograph (for example) birds in flight having 9 point Cross focus is a distinct advantage.
