so i'm thinking about upgrading my 50D but still unsure in deciding which camera to replace it. the choices are:

1. the-one-year-younger 7D

2. the-newly-released 70D

3. cheaper-canon 700D

4. wait-for-the 7D2

5. stick with my 50D (since i haven't find suitable camera yet)

as a xxD user, i fancy the magnesium-alloy body and the versatility of the dial button on the back of the cam. and i feel that both 60D and its successor 70D gives an awkward feeling. i dont really care about videos and articulated or touch-screen lcd. i was thinking to upgrade it to 7D but hey! its only 1 year younger than mine and still cost $1200! my budget are around $1000-$1500, $1700 are considerable though. any comments are appreciated!

I have both the 50D and the 7D. While the 7D is a far more complete camera, I still use my 50D a lot. I have it loaded with Magic Lantern, which allows the 50D to capture HD video (it seems it was a capability that Canon left disabled at the time) but without sound.
