I agree :) If I didn't shoot mostly action, that would be the camera I'd buy.

With what you shoot you certainly won't regret it!

Great choice, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I've got a 5D2 and a 7D, but I use the 5D2 about 90% of the time cause it's just so good.

I traded one of my 7Ds for a 5D2 for a few days over the summer and I liked it a lot. If I didn't shoot sports all the time I'd have one.

Not sure why anyone would pay full price for a 5D2 at this point. Too many basically brand new options on the used market for under $1800.

The plan is to sell the 7d and 10-22 to fund the 5d. Since i sold the 7D already, now it's the 10-22's turn.:)
