I have had a 7D with a sigma 70-200 2.8, 17-85 4, 10-22 3.5 and the 50mm 1.8 for 4 years now and I like to think I have learned and improved with it.
I shoot white water kayaking in the UK in winter in dark river gorges which getting good expsoure and freezign the paddler and water can be challenging so better iso range would be great. I also shoot family other sports, wildlife and landscapes more recently.
Noting the rumours about the new 7d on the way, I am seriously consider getting that if the price specs etc check out. The 7dmk ii must coast at least £1300?
But then I noticed the 5dmk111 is now available for £1800 body only.
Thinking the price of my 7d is likely to plummet as the market gets saturated, I was seriously considering making the move to FF. Picking up a cheap 2nd hand 24-105mm old kit lens and sell the 10-22 and 17-85.

What would your opinions be?

Would using an external flash help?

Use of flash can help if I am out walking to do thsi but most often I am paddling as well, often shooting from 20M + meters away and have to get camera in my kayak in a dry bag. The less kit the better.
Mostly working with wet cold hands so fixing flash or setting up to work remotely is not easy and takes time. Typical you paddle as small team get to a rapid / watefall. Jump out paddlers run teh rapid I snap away and we move on. So limited set up is good.
