Im going to weigh in too. Congrats on the 7d, the focus system is excellent! I do not own one but i see what it does on the 7d's my guys i hire use. It was a big jump in keepers from the even very good 50d.
 
Get the 24-105L, i havent heard a bad thing about it. For a guy getting into it it will give you excellent images with great range. I think to start off its the best option. If you get hardcore at some point you will delve into primes. I don't recommend those for you right now unless a 50mm or 40mm are what you would get.

Enjoy!

I have to agree with Tcapp :D  I only use my 1dm3 as a compliment to my 5dm3 now, I seem to always use my 5dm3 for sports now too. Image quality and colors are incredible on the 5dm3. I prob have 30,000 actuations or more on it already.

If I still had my 7D I wouldn't get rid of it.  The extra reach is really great.  I could go to track meets with a 300 f/4L and be just fine (480mm).

I have a 40D which is a great camera, it's burst (fps) is one of the best, and still an APS-C sensor which helps to get more reach.
Couple with a 17-55mm f/2.8 IS (superb, close to L-quality), a 65mm f/2.8 macro (very handy) and a 70-300mm IS I have 95% of any need!
I believe the 7D is a superstar and I am still thinking on upgrading, but there are few things that make me wait: Photokina 2012 is just 8 weeks away to see if they replace it (rumors say they will have a FF this time which I am not interested), but if they come with an APS-C sensor, 61 focus points and ISO ay 25,600; for sure I will go for it!
If not, guys, they are selling the 7D for $1,550 and less if you go refurbished.

I guess it is a personal preference. I was waiting for a 7D2 and in April my patience ran out after 18 months. I did not want to limit myself to the iso of the 7D so I bought the 5d3. If you can wait another few weeks, do that as there are a slew of cameras coming down.

So far the 7D is what I expected and more! I'm very happy with my 7D!! For now I went with the 18-135 kit.

Looking on getting a 24-105 L or a 17-55 later on this year. and a couple more lenses later don't the road.

Thanks again for all the advices and suggestions guys!! Very much appreciated!!  ;D

I'll post up some shots of it after I get back from my Dallas trip this weekend. :D

I guess you will be on the lookout for a refurb then :D

Here's a couple shoots I've done with my 7D so far.

This is my very first DSLR so I apologize if my photos are not quite up to par with the one's here on the site. ;D

Feel free to critique my photos and Tips and Suggestions are also welcome. ;D
