I think one thing people are forgetting is that for a year after a body is released, its price is very high...like, 50% higher than they sell for right now. Do you really believe the new 7D is going to be worth $17-1800+ for the body when the current one can be had for $1100?
so you prefer not to have any new stuff... i see.
i have 2000 euro waiting for a new backup FF body.
no way i buy another 5D MK2 and the 5D MK3 is to expensiv for a backup body.
So you too wanted something better than the 5D2 but cheaper than a 5D3?
