Currently having one exchange 2007 in production and one in DR. Going forward will have two in production and either 1 or 2 in DR site, configure with CAS array, Stretched DAG and Archive Mailbox.. This is the plan to achieve..

Although there are several new features in exchange 2013 it is still quiet new. They have just released the CU3 update which corrected a bunch of issues regarding bugs/functionality. They will soon also be releasing SP1 for Exchange 2013 as well. From my own personal experience it is usually a good idea to stay a couple years out of the most recent release. This is so that the general public or people that have to have the "latest and greatest" version can be test pilots for the software while the developers for the product can correct these issues in cumulative updates or service packs. Exchange 2010 has a lot of great features which your company can benefit from and it will be a smoother transition for you coming from a 2007 environment.

Exchange 2013 is quiet a bit different from every perspective administration and architectural so even though most of the same concepts apply for Exchange 2013 you will have to familiarize yourself with administration and planning server role placement. Exchange 2013 also requires you to have a decent level of knowledge with powershell so that you can configure core parts.of exchange as everything is not available in the EAC (gui).
