I have been considering going from a 50D to a 5DC. I would lose FPS, no big deal. I would also lose the higher ISO range(most of time unusable anyway). I think the FF iso range it comparable to the crop. So in the real world, from what i has assessed, I would only be losing FPS and gaining a whole new world of prospective. Your thoughts and opinions are welcomed, thanks!

Will your 17-50 work on FF or is is designed for crop sensors?
If so you will have to replace it if you get a 5Dc.

The 17-50 will vignette on the 5D, but it will mount and be usable.

You lose the new menu system and the better LCD on the 50D. You also lose resolution for any cropping you might now have to do on the 5Dc.

If you have enough budget, I would consider looking at a 5D2.

I would most likely forgo the 17-50, get a 24-105. I have the 85 1.8 and would need a zoom later. I would most likely get the 24-105, keep the 85 1.8 and later add a 70-200 f/4 IS. I guess my biggest concern is would all I be giving up realistically be the FPS

If you don't shoot above 3200 on the 50D, and the wider view of your existing lenses isn't a problem where you have to crop, then yes, the fps is probably the only real functional issue. How much do you shoot as burst?

Well there you go, that's what I needed to hear. Thanks! I might just save my coin and buy a 5DC for a another play pretty then. Any other suggestions?

Possibly look for a 1Ds2?

For FF goodness (or close), you only have a few choices from the 5dc generation onwards, in order of cost:
5D classic
1Ds2
(1D3?)
5D2
6D

Might consider the 1D3. It would fit right between the FF and 1.6 crop, and give you more FPS, and its ISO management is better than the 5Dc.

I just added a 50d as a back up to my 5dc and tbh the files from the 5d blow the 50d away. Maybe the clean images the 5dc's sensor makes has spoiled me a bit but I'm already thinking of moving the 50d on. The AF is the major difference in my book and it's the only thing making me consider keeping the 50d.

I have been shooting with a 40D, and just added a 5Dc to the mix. I haven't had a real good chance to try it out yet, just a few tests inside, but my conclusion so far is...there's not much difference. Noise straight out of camera is noticeably different, but not by much. 10 seconds in LR and you can't tell much difference. There is a bigger gap in color noise, but color noise is easier to get rid of.

I never thought of my 40D as all that "fast" before, but after going back to it after the 5D, it is like lightning!

The main reason I added the 5D was because I needed a backup camera for weddings this summer, and I wanted to try out FF. At this point, I am not convinced it was worth the extra money over just getting another used 40D which I can get for about $300 (vs. $600 for the 5D).

The biggest noticeable difference is the shallower DOF of the 5D. Shooting inside, with the 50 1.8 on my 40D, and the 85 1.8 on the 5D, there is a very noticable difference in DOF while having a similar FOV.

I will not make a decision on the 5D until I use it to shoot the 2 weddings this summer...but it may be sold in favor of a used 7D.
