I still say we should have a vote and he must do whatever the outcome is. Otherwise he really needs to decide what's best for himself. I do like the idea of selling both but I'd recommend a 1dmk iv instead to address all those other undisclosed uses he would have.

I think it's "odd" that OP wouldn't already know the answer himself. It depends if he needs a like-for-like backup. Seems to me that without long telephotos in his bag he doesn't need a crop sensor. Also: the 7D has not been superseded yet and can get a higher proportion of its new price than the 5D II, which has indeed been superseded.

Nonetheless, in his situation I would be eyeing up a 1DS III instead. It does not have the lowest noise performance but it still has the quality.
