I'd be looking at the Canon 60D, Nikon D7100 or Pentax K5 II. The Canon 7D is a good camera, just a tad older design. The 60D is not as good of a build but probably a little better otherwise. Personally, I think the Nikon or Pentax I mentioned are either one better, but that's a personal call.

For example, the Nikon D7100 has more megapixels, better dynamic range, better color depth, and is better in dim light. The Pentax is also the same except slightly less megapixels but maybe a slightly better build. Pick your poison.

Thanks Craig!  It just occurred to me that I did not mention I would like to stick with Canon.  For some reason my Fiancee did have that one stipulation.  Apparently her Dad is a huge fan.  I see the 7D is a bit sturdier....what would steer you away from it?
