...I'm curious as to what YOU would do. Not necessarilly what I should do, but what you would do....One of my two bodies is a 7D so I am bias. I would choose a 7D for:
- Ergonomics / button layout / build
- and of course AF
Those are my quick reasons
Only you will know if the price difference between selling your now used 7D is big enough over a new 60D. I'm guessing the gain would be $200 or $300 if you are lucky.
I don't do sports photography or BIF. The closes thing to fast moving is my kids playing, so I don't really need the 7D AF.Today the 7D's AF may not be important but tomorrow you might get a call for a gig where it will be.
...The 7D will have a better resale value. Again, though, this isn't as important as I can't really see myself selling it in the near future. Upon purchase of my next body, the 7D/60D will become my back-up.[/li]I wouldn't worry about the resale of either. Both resales will stink in the long run. Just know you have a great camera and enjoy it.
[li]The AFMA and better AF of the 7D will be invaluable
IF I end up actually needing that in the future.....
No doubt, AFMA is and will be invaluable especially if you have or add fast glass in the future...I think you might have just answered your own question here. Good luck
