#3 for me. In fact I just decided on that combo and arranged the trades, I'm trading out a 7D and 5DC for 5D2 and 1D MkIIn. If I really miss the 7D, I'll trade again for another one, but I'm very interested in shooting the 1x series for a while.

I think #3 would be fun. Kind of leaning towards #4 you could use EF-S lenses as well, but the 5DmkII and 1DmkII would make a nice "pro" (or perhaps considered semi-pro) kit compared to using a 50D.

Never had a focus problem with the 5D2

My choice would be either 5D2 and 7D or 5D2 and 1D3

I've had #1 (7D & 5D) since last October. Great combo! Except, I'd have listed them the other way, as 5D & 7D ;)

Now, in my case, I guess you could call it Combo #1A ... 5DMKII & 7D. For the first time in a very long time, I'm not dreaming or even thinking of what my next camera body will/might be. Have a feeling this will be my set up for a long time and I'll be very happy. Happy with my set of lenses too though I'm sure there will probably be another one or two along the way. :lol:

+1 for #3, although #5 is a great alternative, no denying the 1d3

So it's pretty close to a split between #1 and #3.
I'd like a 5Dmk2 and a 7D but the wife wants a new dining room table, so the budget won't allow for that right now. I'll head to the store tomorrow and play with the 5Dmk2 and 7D.

if you like both of them. Why not buy one of them now, and wait till you have more fund to buy the other one?

#4 or anything with the 5DMKII. If you don't mind using both brands, then a D300 with the 5DMKII would be excellent.

The 5dmkII would be a great combo with anything really. For slow moving subjects and no real demands for long range shooting I'd say a 5dmkII and 5d would be a great combo.

One thing to determine is what type of shooting your doing. The high MP of the 5dmkII and 7D is very appealing if you crop alot.

With the 7D I find the IQ to be very good with primes. On print a 7d and 5dmkII would be a multipurpose potent combo with great cropping capabilities.

I thought I'd go for #2 but then thought about it again. I'm now shopping for a 1ds to compliment my 1d2. For the OP, Id vote for #1 or #3
