My SX30 is still working reasonably well, so I will stick with it. I tend to beat them up carrying them in a bag on my saddle many times a week, so I expect to eventually need something else and was wondering ahead of time about these upgrades.

Hope you enjoy seeing it!

Basically, if I am going to be within 50 yards of my car, then I get my Sigmonster out. However, it requires a very substantial tripod, so it is not that portable.
If I am going to be dayhiking within a few miles of my car, then I take my Canon 7D with Tamron 150-600 lens. The I.S. makes it workable without any tripod, like for birding.
If I am going longer distances, like a multi-day backpacking trip, then I take the little SX50. I do carry a lightweight tripod for it, but the tripod seldom sees use except maybe at the last light of the evening. An equivalent of 1200mm allows me to get to just about all wildlife without the tripod.

Of course, if the 7DII actually has improved noticeably at high ISO, that may be the best of both worlds (image quality plus more rugged and faster-paced sports/wildlife performance), but I want to see more examples from it first.
That may well be the best option Max. I'll sit tight and see how that Mark II works out. If it gets good reviews on ISO performance, maybe I'll ditch the Tamron towards funding the 7DII. If there are any doubts about ISO performance in the reviews tho, I may bite the bullet for the 5d3. I've been bothered by noise since the old 400 vs. 100 or slide film days so I should know better by now!
