    The basics or fundamentals still apply.

    the only fault with the 7D it's 1.6x sensor. if it's 1.3x it would be a worth upgrade.

    if technology is the factor, 5D3 is probably what he should aim for or 1D4 for the frame rate.

    in any case, if TS is not shooting action/sports, upgrading from 60D to 7D is silly to me (even if it's after a "better", higher-in-the-line camera). both are crop. should have went the latest FF.

    I am thinking budget might be a factor. 60D used -> 7D used might only be two to three hundred dollars difference, while a 5Dmk2 used is about 1k difference.

    Cough cough... Another one month old 60D user here who had the same thought as you to upgrade to 7D.
    Eventually, I start to learn the philosophy of lighting in photography. And my favorite photos are night photography and street photography, so I am thinking faster IQ Len and bigger AP lens would suit my tast the most. Looking at all time favorite cropped Len sensor Canon 17-55mm F2.8 to give me a better photography result especially At night photography.

    You might be impressed with the weather sealed of 7D body, eventually you would think of another weather sealed L Lens. But it is defeating the purpose because it is a cropped sensor body. And spend lot $$$

    Well, think of upgrading lens instead of another cropped sensor body
