+1 on staying with 40D. Unless you need high ISO. My 40D (have sold it since) was only useable up to iso 1600 and I need to go higher than that to take photos of my son's hockey games. But at lower ISO, 40D is excellent... I think it is very comparable to 5Dc.

No, I don't. Pity, they could have been suitable I guess -- Olympus OM, Leica R, Leica M.

Leica M wont work....

If you'll say - I'm taking landscapes and portraits with 5Dc, but switching to newer 40d which has some more functions - I'll say you are nuts.

If you don't, somebody else will. :p
And please can you tell me what your avatar is?

"The thing is, I have recently become increasingly interested in FF digital photography, for the high quality of the images."

Somewhat a misconception here in that just moving to a 5D is no guarantee you will get better IQ. In fact you time might be better spent in trying to understand why the 40D isn't delivering high IQ that meets your satisfaction. It certaily is capable of deliving. Before you go spend money, perhaps post some samples of what you are displeased with so we can perhaps help you to get better images.

You'd be going from the 14-bit ADC in the 40D to the 12-bit ADC in the 5D. If you do heavy curves adjustments in raw conversion this would be a step backwards. Of course the 5D might have a nicer viewfinder.

Ludwig, to be realistic, you will only have a real gain if you step up to the 5D2 and explore the footsteps of Amsel Adams with a 50mm lens until further notice.

Right now you are living in relative luxury with a decent camera and focal lengths from 17mm to 255mm. I'd think it would be a good idea to put on your respect spectacles, take another look at your gear, see how much more you can get out of it, which is likely a lot, and put the nut cracker back in the drawer for another day. :D
