I agree... and I don't have a good excuse. I just want it.

That right there is a solid argument for why you don't need an excuse.

Billginthekeys, you make a great point. I just don't see me regretting the decision to spend another 1500 dollars 10 years down the road either. One day, I'll have all the lenses I could wish for as I have a good paying job and few other temptations, but today I want to get in the FF, pro body game and am willing to trade a 1500 lens for the upgrade body. There is an excitement factor that I just can't get over.

Hey I am not downing you, or trying to prevent you from having some fun. Every now and then you have to go buy something because it is new and shiny and amazing. I am equally guilty having bought my fair share of photo stuff, and other gadgets like iPad's, iPhones, ect. Everyone can afford to experience the rush of having that new gadget before anyone else every now and then, try and do it all the time and you will find you wasted a lot of money.

As far as flash goes, why not the poor-man's 580 EX II: the Yongnuo YN565EX? Amazon has them at $154.95. And if you don't need TTL, their other non-TTL models are cheaper yet.

ST-E2 Transmitter______$227.​55
Speedlite 270EX II______$128.00

Unless you're need to do ETTL with OCF you're better off getting a used 430EXII and get some radio trigger that allows you to do manual flash.

If I were you I'd consider getting the 70-200 F4 IS.

I think you would be better off investing more into glass at your stage of the game than worrying about having the newest body. I think you would be better off with a 5D2 and a 70-200 2.8L IS II than a 5d3 and a 70-200 F4 L. Any reason for the ST-E2 and 270EX II in particular?

I agree. Plus, the lens will travel with you when you're ready to upgrade bodies... the body obviously won't. That's my favorite lens, ever.
