    Karan,
    Both the 7D and the 5D Mark II are good cameras.

    Which lens are you going to use?

    The 5D Mark II has a full fame sensor. Where as the 7D sensor is smaller and hence your lens will be effectively increased by 1.6 times due to the 1.6 crop factor. So a 300mm lens will be equivalent to a 300*1.6 = 480mm.

    The 7D has a faster burst rate than the 5D II and the auto focus system of 7D is also better.

    For landscapes and video shooting I will prefer the 5D Mak II over the 7D.

    If you are clicking birds, then I would prefer a 7D.

    Tell us more about what you would like to shoot and which lens you want to buy. That will help in the decision making.

    Kaling,
    I have posted the details about the new EOS 5D Mark III camera here: Canon Announces EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR - Indiawilds: Land of the Tiger. Conservation, Wildlife Photography, Communities

    The EOS 5D Mark III is an upgrade of the EOS 5D Mark II camera. It has the same full frame sensor. The 7D has an APS-C sensor (a 1.6 crop sensor ) and has a faster frame rate. The 5D Mark III is the highest MP digital SLR from Canon and has much better video functionalities.
