I am a 550d owner. As far as I can tell - all the recent crops are the same IQ overall. The primary differences pertain to the overall handling, focus speed, and build. The 7d being the top of the line as a fast moving rugged sports camera - which is great but probably not your priority.

I would just get the 700d + A GRIP

Hey, I wouldn't worry too much about resale value if I were you, lenses are the real investment. If it's your first DSLR I think it's more productive to be in the mindset of: 'Right! this camera will last me for 4/5 years, by which time I'll have shot thousands of images, learned a heck of a lot about photography and know my camera better than my wife'
After you've done that, then it's the time to become a 'gear head', lurking here for snippets of new camera info, complaining about DR etc.. ;)

I know when your buying something you want to make the best choice you can, but once you've made that choice fly with it. As for camera advice, I feel the 60D offers the best value at around £600. The 70D will prob come in around £1,000

Haven't you read the thread about somebody looking over your shoulder?
You are either very brave or not married... ;)

Btw, I agree with what you say. It is technique that one has to master. Bodies will come and go...
