If you're not using much, sell me your 40d. Buy the 7d if you like it that much.
I'm having this dilemma as well, owning a 40d & considering to upgrade to a 7d..
My main reason for wanting to upgrade is coz of the capability of shooting video for the 7d..
N 7 is my lucky number
Depends on what you feel lacking in your current camera.
If you shoot very little, and have good tolerance of higher ISO noise or not much need to shoot under poor lighting conditions (or use flash when faced with them), or even if you are just shooting still objects and landscapes, there may not be a need to change a camera.
Bro can sell me ur cam for $100 since the shutter count is so highhhh at 15K. Anyway u wont be using it since it's sooo old technology and only a 7D can make your photo turns out better. PM me k. Thx.
if u feel that you really need the video function in 7d and you are going to utilise the camera more often than before or you have intentions to be more serious in the hobby, then perhaps you shld upgrade it. if otherwise, you can just stick with your 40d since you mentioned that you don't do photography often.
Reading this forum, especially the sale section can be aditive. Whenever I scroll through it, I have the tendency to pick up something but not always using them.
I think it is important to maintain discipline not use whatever you already own. Buy only if the current set up cannot meet you need. Hope I can also do what I just said

And gamble ur money away instead? Haha
Since u mention it yourself.. u dont shoot alot.. then why bother to get a new camera when your prevs 1 is working fine.
And yes.. skills apart.. to take better/nicer photo.. a good glass is more useful than a camera body.
