 in defense of the title,  we have only so many characters we can use.   though,  there are better ways to express that query. 

 to answer the question,  it depends on the price.  I  was  selling 60d's  for $600 New a while back.   if you can get a 7d  for 800 or so used,  jump on it.   if you don't care about  video our are willing to install magic lantern,  the 50d  is still a great camera and can be had for 400+  on Amazon.   and that has afma  a magnesium core, a joystick,  and better shots per second than the 60d.

 basically it is a 7d  junior. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

if you like so much the 1dmk2 why not to buy a used 1dmk3 (or a mk2) instead?
