Not off topic at all--If you are not heavily invested in the Canon lens system Nikon seems to be a step ahead in body technology.

I'm looking to make the same switch. I shoot mainly landscapes/still photos, so AF isn't too much of a big deal to me. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is losing live view, but I can learn to live without it. If you're not looking for better AF, and don't need the extra reach of a crop, I don't see a reason why not

I have a T1i, 60D, and just purchased a 5Dc. I have to say that compared to the 60D the AF sucks, the menus suck, but the way the images look using the same lenses (such as the 85 1.8) is no comparison. The 5Dc images just have a certain something about them. I've found in very limited shooting that up to ISO800 there is little noise and subject/background separation is amazing.

I bought it specifically to photograph people and portraits, so for me it's good enough and the files not too big that they bring my computer to it's knees.

For the price, just buy the 5Dc to try.

I made the exact switch from t2i to 5Dc, and I am happy with my decision. The thing I miss the most about the t2i is the self-sensor cleaning and hq lcd screen. I think the 28-135 will be ok all around, and the 50 will be good. They are both good performers, and I probably wouldn't have made the switch if I hadn't swung a good deal for my wide angle. You may want to try the 5Dc out for a while first before selling off all your other gear, just in case you are unsatisfied with the 5Dc. Good luck!

I believe that 5Dc has got better ISO than T2i even without seeing the comparison. I used to have a 5Dc and it was a great camera with excellent performance! I have 5D2 now, but I always recommend the 5Dc as the best camera I ever had.

I would pick this up over a crop at any day. It doesnt have video or liveview, but if you are after a great photography experience and you dont mind no liveview and basically a display only good for checking the histogram, this is the camera to go for!

Should clarify, if the OP is fine with take a step back in terms of tech then the 5Dc is a great camera. But saving for a 5D2 or 6D is a better decision IMHO.
