Re: no camera (beside 1D) can replace the fast shooting 7D

the 6 fps is simply not enough, and worse than the old D700.

That is true only if the OP is using the 7D to shoot sports or other subjects that require high fps. Obviously if the OP can afford a 1D then sure, they should go for it. Other than that the 5D3 is an excellent 7D upgrade.

Of course the 7D is also an excellent camera. I certainly wouldn't upgrade from the 7D to the 6D. Keep the 7 and save up for the 5D3.
