The advantage of the 7100 over most other choices is the price compared with the number of focus spots, all realted to photographing running dogs.

Then you better take a second look and look beyond the pure numbers - that oh so praised AF system in the F7100 only has cross type sensors in the middle and is known not to be the fastest when used in 3D tracking mode... So the 7D is by far the better specced camera.

And I have apparently convinced myself that the 7D is too old to buy, regardless of how good it is

So you rather buy a new but mediocre camera than an tried and tested model which is still more advanced than the new one...

It has 15 cross type focusing sensors and 35 single type sensors and being a aps-c type imaging sensor the focusing sensors cover almost the whole viewfinder so no matter where the objet is in the viewfinder it will always be covered by a focusing sensor.
