a major + for me of the 7D is the ability to capture 'RAW' and jpeg AT THE SAME TIME
The 5D can also shoot raw + jpeg (fine).

But, if memory card space is a consideration, you can shoot raw only, and still magnify raw images during playback on the camera (a feature missing on the 7D).

The 5D does capture RAW+ jpeg and with a Sandisk III card will shoot very fast and for long bursts.

You know that the 7D has a larger buffer. ;-)

But, the 5D writes to media faster than the 7D, so it's smaller buffer isn't as much as a handicap as you might think, unless you really need a long burst of images when shooting in raw.

I rarely even leave my 5D set to continuous mode. I prefer deliberate shots, versus the 'machine gun" approach to images. If I were shooting sports, perhaps the larger buffer of the 7D would be more important.
