Plus, the T3i jpg's look sharper with the same lenses than a 7D anyways, because the 7D is meant to be taken and processed in RAW, not JPG, so corners were cut.
You have a reliable source for that ?
When TDP did his review of the 7D, he said that at the same 'sharpness' setting, the 7D was softer than the 50D, but i haven't seen anything mentioning the 550/600/60D.
*If* it's true (that the 7D is softer), then my money would be on it just being older, they improve algorithms and features all the time, eg the 600D has digital zoom in movies, not because it's better or more expensive, just because it's the newest. From now on every camera's gonna have that, and more, regardless of cost.
