Only micro adjustments on 7D matters. I never need this function on my 60D, because I do tests when buying lens.
 Don't listen if someone tells 60D is plastic. That's rediculous! there are no plastic SLRs - they all are metal inside.
60D is the best Canon choice for video. You can use Magic Lantern on it, but not on 7D.
Your lenses are too big and heave for crop, I''d advise to go for 5Dm2. so 60D or 5Dm2 - my Imho.

As much as I would like to get a 5dm2, it would not meet the wife approval factor on cost since we are in a recession.... :o

I think either the 60D or 7D would be fine for an upgrade.  Either camera is a huge upgrade from a 10D.  For price, the 50D used is also a huge upgrade.

+1.

I specifically upgraded from a 10D to the 50D in 2008. Basically everything was a huge upgrade. Using RAW almost impossible on the 10D due to the 1MB/s CF write speed. On the 50D, only full-auto with RAW creates waiting time.

I was thinking I need upgrade to get higher iso on newer body.
I was going to get a refurbed, but is the extra 300+ worth it for 7d?
I have 17-40L and 70-200 2.8 is lenses.

I guess my action pictures will be of marching band in HS.
I am weary of 60d focusing if it behaves like the 10d focusing, where it is zoomed out,
it picks wrong object?

With the lens mentioned above... get the 7D.

Get a 5DII.  You survived with 10D, definitely you'll be super fine with a 5DII if 5DIII is not within your budget.  With 7D, you'll sacrifice a lot of IQ.  Why not save a little bit more?

Definitely go for 7D, if you have to choose between 7D or 60D, or buy 5DII if you have more money like verysimplejason's alternative idea :) I've used all those 3 Cameras and never get disappointed with 5DII ;)

I would wait until Photokina, there is high probability that the 60D gets a successor; and rumors suggest that it will move up a little bit again, closer to the 7D.

"your lenses are too big and heave for crop"  what do you mean ?

Yes they are all metal Inside but not on the outside ... the plastic will take far more scratches and will look and feel old much faster than metal.
For example the plastic card-door on my 7D looks so much more just than any of its metal-bodyparts.
And when I compare my old 40D(metal) and 350D(plastic) the metal on the 40D doesnt really changed over the years but the 350D  does and is now looking and feeling like it will fall apart every second. Also the gaps between the body parts  get bigger over time and much more on plastic bodys.
