I used to have a Yashica "Dental Eye" which I used for close ups.

The mount is a Contax Yashica which you can buy adapters for

There is no reason to buy a 7d anymore. None.

Buy a 70d, or at worst/just as good, wait a lil bit for the new rebels. You cant go wrong in that scenario. 7d is history, let it go softly into the night

I would hang onto the 7D for sports, and go full frame (5DIII - if buying before July).  If you really want to do portraiture, I'd strongly consider the 85 f/1.2 II.  It's pricey, but there's nothing better for portraits unless they are all in the studio, where you won't likely shoot wide open.  The 24-105 would be just fine for that.  I would keep it as well for studio stuff.  For landscapes and environmental portraits, I'd add the 16-35 f/4 IS.  That and some lighting & light modifiers (speedlites or strobes and softboxes) and you'll have a well rounded kit with what you already have.
5Ds and 5DsR sent me into a dilemma: Which one is the best suited camera for me ... I like sharpness and I hate artifacts like moiré!

I ordered a 2nd hand 5D mark i and must say: A real upgrade from APS-C cameras like 7D or EOS M in terms of IQ. Just tested it 2 hrs but the images are MUCH cleaner than Canon's APS-C systems.

And I will wait relaxed how the 5D line develops ...
Good, this gives me time to pay off the 11-24 I just bought ;D
lion rock, it is really involved and time-consuming to do your own book, and you're right, just doing one on Shutterfly or similar sites is a lot of work. 

Famateur, the best way to get started is to decide the idea for the book and start going through your photos.  Once you start that, it sort of fuels itself.  Also, don't try to caption a floral book if you're not a master gardener/horticulturist/botanist.  I'll never do that one again!
It's interesting how un-excited I am by this  :'(
Me too.  I'm anticipating the A7RII a lot more.
Thanks sama!

I too ordered on 2.27.  I'll let everyone know once I hear something as well.

The 7D is certainly an upgrade over a T3, but its getting kind of dated.  As others suggested, I think the 70D would be a better upgrade for about the same cost.
