I guess a better question for me to ask would be will the 7D be obsolete any time soon? I know it's apples to oranges, but would it be analogous to buying a outdated computer. Will the technology still be relevant 2 or 3 years from now?

There will always be newer models and upgrades over the horizon but it doesn't make the current model suddenly stop producing great results.

The entry level T4i is highly regarded even though the little improved T5i was just announced the other day. The 70D is rumored to be available fairly soon and the successor to the 7D (7D II) is rumored to arrive at the end of summer and both are speculated to have some major improvements but with a commensurate price increase, meaning the current 60Ds and 7Ds will be very affordable and abundant if you feel like waiting.

There are a couple of reputable used sites whose members are reliable avid enthusiasts that list mint lightly used gear with pics and full disclosure...........might be worth a look to compare.......I've literally saved thousands $$$ over the years buying mint gear, most with a remainng warranty from members with high feedback scores......
