7D or 70D

Good Afternoon DPReview readers,

Canon EOS 7d has recently dropped in price and is available now for a very good price in Japan. My question is would it still be a better buy than the latest 70d? I'm not really into video and I prefer the more rugged and weather sealed body of the 7d. Not a pixel peeper or high MP count fan either as I am upgrading from a 40d( I love the scroll wheel). My photographs are typical for a father with kids(10 and 13) who play sports(badminton, soccer, basketball). I think that the 7d still has a lot to offer even though it's a bit old given the pace of technological advancements in digital photography. not looking to change systems as I am heavily invested in Canon so I would appreciate your thoughts. One thing that's making me hesitate is that the 7d2 might come out and I would prefer to buy the 7d1 already knowing what the 7d2 is. Sorry for the scattered thoughts. thanks in advance for the comments.
