Apple did put FCP Studio back on sale in September last year but only though its telesales. However they did say it was for a "limited" time.
So I would ring Apple sales direct and see if you can still buy it.
You can only buy the full version and I believe it was around $900 US.

However in terms of upgrades to FCP 7 - there are none, FCP 7 is OEL and will not be developed any further.

If you buy or have FCP 7.0 the ProApps upgrades to 7.03 are still available on the Apple website. Thats as far as you can go.

In terms of buying from the net then it really is "buyer beware".

If you can be sure that you are getting a full version with the license then it is legal under the license terms to buy it.
In that event you should be fine.

So basically FCP7 is dead, stuck at V7.03. You will possibly be fine with that for a couple of years depending on what you want to do.
However at some point (possibly Mountain Lion) the OS will no longer support it.

So for a temporary solution FCP7 will be OK but if you want something you can upgrade further look at FCPX, Avid or Adobe or whatever your NLE of choice happens to be.

best wishes
Neil
