Worthy XTi Replacement?

A friend of mine is ordering the new 5D Mark III. That's great and all but way outside my price range (and my usage - I'm just a hobbyist, take pics for fun)

I'm using a six year old XTi, with my favorite lens, the 17-85 EFS, and a Tamron 70-300 (broken twice since I bought it in 2007 - would not recommend it btw).

Mostly I'm frustrated with image quality, lack of ISO options, and poor color balance (my camera loves to make things yellow).

I don't care about HD video, and probably should stick with APS-C since I already spent the money on the 17-85 lens. I tend to take pictures of airplanes, scenery, and objects. Not many people pictures or sports.

Eventually I'd like to get the L glass 70-300 (to replace the tamron) but how well would it work with my APS-C?

Possible replacements for my XTi:

Canon 60D
Canon 7D
Canon 5d Mark II (if it comes down in price)

What do you guys think?

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Canon EOS 5D Mark III Canon EOS 60D Canon EOS 7D
