Why not look at a 5D Mk.II?

It's not in my budget at the moment but that is the next camera I will get.

The 5D is great for portraits only. I was thinking of doing something similar when I had APS-C. Using only the 5D and my 85mm 1.8 for portraits, APS-C for everything else.

I went a different route, but this would have been fine.

Sorry but that's absurd. The 5D is more capable than you give it credit for. I've used the 5D for sports, landscape, and plenty of other things. It's certainly not as suited as some other cameras but its hardly limited to portraits only.

Looks like I should go back and delete all of my motorsports photos I took with the 5D then:cry:

Obviously they were deeply flawed.
