comment Is my Canon camera broken, or do I just need a new battery door?
Then there probably is something else wrong. My 7D, after a fall, sometimes requires me to reposition the conduits inside the body for the battery to connect correctly. If you know someone else with the same camera body, you can try the grip and batteries on on it. The batteries will work in any 5D, 6D or 7D, but the grips are body specific.

Sounds like you're trying to create environment texture maps?

comment Are there drawbacks when using Panasonic lenses on Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras?
The newer camera bodies will have support for the distortion correction for cross brand lenses. And I guess it really just depends on how up-to-date Olympus keeps the firmware for future lens. And that's really only go to come into play if you're shooting in JPEG. I shot it raw when I was using both the Panasonic and the E-M5.

comment What do you recommend for a high quality photo book service?
Coulture does sewn signatures, and as of July, Blurb is working on offering it as an option. Blurb has done much to improve their print quality since I did my first book three years ago. They now have a Proline that offers two additional high quality papers

comment Where can I rent a camera and lens online within the US?
I've used Lensrentals.com several times for testing and playing with lenses before purchasing them. Their service is fast and the prices are reasonable. Many times they shipped the lens earlier than planned, so I got an extra day free. Just realize you will need to sign for the delivery, so plan accordingly.

comment Which piece of equipment is holding me back?
I will also add, that I upgraded to the 7D from the T1i because the autofocus just wasn't cutting it for me, especially with the sharper lenses. I found that the Rebels were just too slow and not accurate enough, and the better glass makes it very apparently when your dealing with action shots. While the new Rebels can produce great still life shots, the processors, more than the sensors makes the difference when it comes to action. Especially when you're dealing with thin DOF from the wide open lens.

The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM will probably work fine for you. That's all I use, since I'm hardly ever using it in a situation that I have a slow enough shutter speed to make a huge difference. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is an amazing lens, and I've been tempted to upgrade, but it's a significant price jump. I'd rent the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM first, see if it meets your needs. With the lighter T2i body, you might find that the weight difference is something you don't want to deal with, since adding the IS added weight and additional elements.

comment Reservations on making the move to Adobe Lightroom or Apple's Aperture
Another point to add, LR can be configured to specific backup reminder times. Which can make sure you are actively backing up your latest work. After losing my catalog a couple of times, due to hardware issues, I've set mine up to backup every time I'm done
