I was in the same position in November and finally pulled the trigger - comming from a Rebel XS/1000D. It is an excellent camera and will be an excellent camera even when a 7D II is announced. I expect the upgrade to be minor. View-finder and fps will probably stay the same as well as build quality and AF. Canon definitely have to upgrade the sensor and processor.
Image quality will be an upgrade from your current camera. For me the better IQ of the current 7D was enough. Might get a FF for the ultimate IQ within the next... uhm 5 years
(looking forward to 5D IV rumors <-- just kidding)
Just my opinion here
