Why don't you enlighten us with an example? A picture is worth a thousand words!...

I use sensors cleaning kit with appropriate size of cleaning pads.
Cleaned only once so far after getting camera in January 2011.
Some people prefer to use liveview mode to focus for landscapes.
60d has it. 5d has large and bright viewfinder compare to 60d.
It doesn't have build-in flash to use as controller for external flashes as 60d has.
Video is valuable option if you want to make money with camera.

Does the 5dc do video? I don't think it does....and what products do you guys use to clean the sensor?

Canon professional services CPS. As a gold member, you get 2 free cleanings and a bunch of other perks.

ANY improved IQ between the 5Dc and ANY crop Canon will depend more on USER image capturing and processing technique than on the inherent differences in technology....

....though the one advantage the full frame sensor has over the crop cam is the reduced/narrower Depth of Field/Focus that you can get with wide aperture lenses on the 5D....something you can't get with the same lenses on a crop camera....

Not true. When I started shooting with my 5Dc after using the 1D3 for a year, I was shocked by how much detail it resolved. 100% crops (unedited) on the 5Dc blew me away.

Well, as I said, if one is looking at images UNcropped, images that use ALL the real estate within the frame, the cropped camera seems to produce detailed images such that crop sensor users are perfectly happy with their cameras....

....again...the differences will depend more on user technique than on technology, at least from what I've observed....

...that is, good technique on a crop cam will produce better IQ than poor technique on a full frame cam....

I clean my cameras with a rocket blower and a wet clean using a kit from copperhill images.

As to to the image quality; uncropped you will notice little to no difference. I do notice a difference in crops and in print. Not necessarily better, just different. The crops from the 60d and 50d look more digital for lack of a better word. I noticed the same thing when I had my 1dii and 1dsii compared to my 60d. I think it has a lot to do with packing so many pixels in such a small area. I don't really know how to properly describe it, but the details seemed cluttered. Again nothing quantifiable, just my preference.

Go with the 5D Classic.
I've owned a bunch of crop bodies over the years, also a 5D and 5DII. Recently I decided to supplement my 7D with a full frame and went with the 5D Classic. It's the only camera i've owned twice. I like the image files from the Classic better than any other body.

I think its been said many times already... but 5dc is an absolutely killer camera. Especially since they're around the 700 ish dollar mark.... what a steal! might have to pick one up as my FF camera along with my 1D3
