I am looking at upgrading from a Canon Rebel

I have a Canon Rebel that I purchased a few years back and I am considering upgrading. My hobby is taking wildlife pictures but I am by no means close to being an advanced photographer so I do not need top of the line equipment. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

A 70d would be good, or possibly a 7d.
Both have the same 19 point autofocus which is good for moving targets.
The 70 d is better at video but 7d is made of metal and has weather sealing so it is good for outdoor work.
Both have a crop sensor so you will not lose that "free" 1.6x focal length multiplier you have on your rebel, plus you have the option of using cheaper EFS crop lenses.
70d is cheaper, but they are clearing out 7d cheap now because 7d2 will be announced shortly.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Thank you!

Agree with Scotty re body & chances of some good deals on 7D right now.

The EOS 7D has been and now even more is the "best buy" in a semi-pro Canon camera body.  It has many pro features. Smiley Happy
