given that the price between this 2 models is significantly different, the question you should ask yourself would be "is the extra $$$ spent on getting an EOS7D worth it?"

http://www.canon.com.sg/personal/compare?productfinder=personal-eos&product1=eos-50d&product2=eos-7d

Knowing why you want to upgrade from 550D would help you better make the decision too. In what ways are 550D not performing to your expectations and what can these bodies offer instead?

Main differences will be ISO performance, HD video recording, metering, focusing, weight and even the feel of the camera.
Hope it helps you make your decision better.

The 550D is a good camera, no reason to change it for the next 2 years at least, unless u wanna go full frame. I think you should get new lenses if your kit lens is not enough for you. For us to recommend one for you, you should tell us what you like to shoot.

We can't read minds you know... without knowing WHY you feel that your current lens (I assume kit lens) is limiting you, how to know what lens to recommend?
We also dunno what your budget is.... and so on.

It isn't so much about what we think, but what you think?

What is your current lens setup? 18-55mm that comes with the camera? Do you like the range? Do you have problems taking in low light conditions? Do you want something to cover a longer range? And what kind of photography are you into?

There is no right or wrong lens as it depends on the individual.

Your bros on clubsnap are always ready to help, but you need to help us help you :)

cheers!

Hold back the sudden idea until it becomes a compelling idea!

how about prime lens?

there is 24, 35, 50, 85, 100, 135, 200

:lovegrin:

actually keep your camera, choose one or few lens according to your shooting preference instead.

Lens can keep longer then camera body.

But if you intend to upgrade to FF someday, it will be wiser for you to start investing in EF lenses not EFS lens cos by then it may not worth alot and harder to sell (seeing more and more ppl going into FF these days).

The prime lens 50mm is good and cheap. You can try that lens until you get better you can buy other better lens to try out.
