Hi Folks,

Thanks to you people, after careful consideration, i have ordered 5d2... :) (was debating between a new 5d2 or a used 1ds2)... the plan is to use 50mm lens predominantly...i do have 100 mm macro and 100-400 to use with it...but once i save up some cash..i am gonna consider 17-40. Landscape and portrait is what my interests are..so i think this set up should be fine. I do plan to go to game reserves..one day..!, i am hopeful my 100-400 will be of good use.

I am coming from 400D...so this should be a sweet change!

Congratulations, you will love it and coming from a 400D you'll be blown away. Just one point I will bring up regarding the 17-40. When I got my 5D2 I had to have that lens as I was used to the 10-22 on the 50D. Surprise surprise, I hardly use it. My 24-70 or 24-105 are far more useful on the FF body. The 17-40 sees more use on my 40D back up body these days.

Yes, and the price is really low for a full frame.
Now he will crop 100% and be proud of his image quality!

I am!
