Just sold my T1i to a co-worker of mine and ordered the 5DII from Canon refurbished. I thought what could happen, if it's defective I will just sent it right back. Worth a shot. Finally made it to FF and my 24-70 and 70-200 will now have their proper home. Can't wait.....

It'll likely be fine, most are. Post some thoughts after you've used it for awhile

Should pick up a 1.4X extender for your 70-200mm then, coz you will notice it is not long enough on the FF now. Lol

Excellent. I'm sure the refurb will be just fine.

You're going to enjoy the advantages of full-frame, the main being the overall higher quality of the image.

Have fun!

not true at all. the "lack of reach" most people think you will notice is not that noticeable. i thought my 24-70 would be too short going FF but it's perfect.

congrats, i made the same move just recently. 5D2 is worth every penny! you will prefer the FL on both lenses SO MUCH more than on a crop, at least for me it was. :)
