I have a fair number of camera bodies now (gear list below)

and was looking to add another, im going to buy used but cant decide if i want to get a 20-50D or get a 1d mk ii or a 5d classic, i shoot a lot of portrait type stuff and have just taken a little bit more interest in landscape -

what would you guys recommend

If it was me, I'd be thinking about upgrading some of my glass, rather than adding to my body collection.

I agree with this, however, I just bought a new body, so maybe I shouldn't talk.

I recommend you upgrade your glass..

A new body isn't going to help you, your t2i already has a capable sensor in it, possibly more capable than the sensor in the 50D and 5Dc.

I'm grasping for a witty quip wrt the op describing his/her bodied as "griped" but not coming up with one.

One more vote for more glass - You've got the telephoto and walkaround prime covered, but not so much for wide/ultra-wide or a normal length zoom.

I'm not counting the 18-200 as either of those, sorry. :) If you're going to upgrade, you'll need better than that. Maybe a Tamron 28-75mm, or one of the 24/28-70mm variants?

Also, if you go for a 5Dc, all but two of your lenses are rendered useless on that new body. And on top of that, I don't think you'd get much from upgrading unless you either wanted better ergonomics/build quality (xxD series and above) or a full frame sensor. The T2i's sensor is very powerful. As they say, lens before body.

(Also, anthony was making a pun on your spelling, gripe vs. grip)

Sell 2 of your bodies, most/all of your glass and buy a 7d with a L lens or two. 24-70 and a 70-200

Perhaps he is unaware of the distinction between griped and gripped?
