    I've decided to wait until I can spring for a 50 MK II or III if I'm flush.

    BTW, picked up the Canon 17-40mm wide angle/zoom in the L series. Same price as the 60D
    Nice pick on the lens Salty. last year i went for 24-70 2.8 L over upgrading my Canon 5D mark I.

    It is always better to upgrade lens over bodies.

    I suggest you wait for 6D to come out then 5D mark II prices will go even more down.

    Once you go FF you can never go back

    Just keep an eagle eye on the 5DII because once the 6D hits the street production will very likely end for the 5DII. It's a real bummer when instant rebates come out and there's zero inventory. The FF bodies are slightly larger but it's pretty nominal when you set them SxS. FF IQ is definately better but crop cameras offer a feature set that's hard to ignore.

    60D 5.7 x 4.4 x 2.8 1.71#

    5D MKII 6.0 x 4.6 x 3.0 2.1#

I'm not all that well versed in the tech side of it all, so dumb it down for me please
    If you will use the auto setting then all of them will be equal. but lens options are more wide with Canon and Nikon.

    Picking a used body will get you a better one for the same price.

    At Potn forums i can see a Clean looking Canon 50d for 450$+ Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 for 320$

    for 770$ you get a killer set

    I agree with Dave. on the size as i have not noticed any difference when upgrading to 5D from 40D.

    But it depends on what kind of pictures you will take.

    For studio, landscape and other wide pictures the FF will be best.
    But for sports, wildlife, etc Crop will be better

    Yup there it is in a nutshell. After that it's a series of compromises as to what's "best" for each shooter. #1 on the 17-50 Tammy for the 50D. I think I'd look for the older version and not the OS but it's hard to find fault with that combo.

    The 5DMKII has been discontinued. Any one hoping to score a deal on a new one may want to check inventory now.
