Myself, I only use Canon accessories but I have seen the other brands and there is very little difference besides cost. I just prefer the Canon brand and warranty and support on them.

Samyang products are very high quality product at very reasonable price, so I would definitely recommend those lens, especially for video, if you have the money. You can also find good optics at very low price if you check on the old SMC Pentax-M, Takumar and Super-Takumar lens on ebay. You just need a 5$ adaptor to fit them on your 60d.I second this suggestion. My film camera and lenses are Pentax M lenxes on K mount.
Every time I talk to my wife about purchasing new equipment.
Mine is whenever my wife logs into our amazon account after I've ordered a new lens. Tomorrow should be fun... Just ordered the 135mm f/2L yesterday. :-)
In a van, down by the river…
But seriously, I have had really good luck with KEH.com for lenses and ebay for all else. There is a lot of ebay hate out there and I understand why, it just has worked out well for me personally and I have no problem with paying a cut to those who provide the platform.
No offence to Pardus, this excellent image shows the detail and saturation possible even at high iso's with a 7D, I would say that set up for RAW and with the slightest of post-processing a lot of the background noise (unobtrusive in this JPEG, but there in the shadows) could be easily removed.I would augment my earlier comments by saying that good glass is important (what lenses do you have just now? the 85 f1.8 and 100mm f2 make brilliant short sports lenses on the 7D) and camera set up is important (tweak the AF, shoot RAW)
I think, as this and the earlier images posted show, any fears of poor image quality are largely ill founded.
The latest cameras in the best of hands are better, but for the money, in fact at any price, the 7D can be a formiddable sports camera.
