Is selling a 40D to get a New 60D @$699 a good upgrade?

Hello,

Im thinking of upgrading camera bodies.My current kit is a 40D, 17-55, 70-200f4 IS, 50mm f1.8,

I would be doing this for the better screen, video mode, better low light, and some better cropping.

The current price is $699for the 60d, the 7D in comparison is still $1279. Is the 7D worth double the price of the 60D's current price?

I dont shoot a lot of wild life, I do backpack every winter so a smaller lighter body is a bonus,

I figure I could do the 40D-60D exchange for about $250-$300 out of my own pocket depending on what i can get for the 40d on my local craigs list

Please let me know your thoughts

Kyle
