that seem to have a very similar interface.

big difference when in video between the 2 cameras, the 7D has a lot more shooting modes to chose from.

The auto focus on the 7D blows the 5DII out of the water, i've experienced what they were talking about with the 5D searching for a focus point a few times. It is anoying (i don't know if you were watching that segment or not) but it's not a make or break situation for me as it's what i learned on, so i know how to cope with it.

However, if i had the 7D first, i would find the 5D autofocus a killer.

The 7D takes a sharper image at 100% crop when at low ISO levels, but if you want still fairly sharp at high ISO, then the 5DII holds it's sharpness much better in higher ISOs

If you're shooting indoors lots, I might recommend the 5DII over the 7D just because of the ISO handling.

if you're doing mostly sporting, go with the 7D
