I need to upgrade my camera too - still using a 300D! From talking to Canon people at trade shows, and reading reviews and looking at various bodies, the 7D is the one for me. I know Canon staff would be biased and push me up the range but I was also looking at the 5D mkII so I think I got decent advice (and I know a couple of people at Canon!).
The 50D is a great camera but the 7D has better weather sealing which, for me, is the most important part as I mainly shoot landscapes in misty/raining/up-to-my-knees-in-sea conditions. Plus it just sat better in my hands than the 50D.
I also have a 2-year old boy so better frame rate and built-in flash would help...
Perhaps while we're all pondering, and saving the extra pennies for a 7D, the 60D will come out and blow all predecessors out of the water!!
