I decided to just save some more and get it, probably at the end of the month.
Next question: I don't have a preferrence when it comes to shooting. I bring my camera everywhere and shoot everything. I like the AF points and speed of the 7D but would like the full frame and low light capabilities of the 5Dii. I'm not sure if Canon will release an MKiii soon, and if it will have the processor that the 7D has. At $900 difference, would it be better just to wait and see what Canon releases?
What do you like to shoot? The 7D and 5D2 are totally different animals and the choice is dependent on what you want to do.
I use my 7D for wildlife and sports and the 5D2 for everything else, including scenics, portraits, street shooting, night shooting, archetectural, etc.
