    I currently have a Rebel XTI camera. I'm saving up to buy a 24-70 standard zoom 2.8L. If I were to upgrade the camera given the lens, should I upgrade to a 5D or a 1D Mark II? Are they that much different in quality?

    Thanks

    What do you shoot?
    How important is full frame sensor to you?
    The 1d mII physically is larger and heavier than the 5D. Is that a concern?
    In your mind, what is quality?

    Personally, I'd go with the 1dMII simply because of the AF system and the 1 series features (I shot with the 1v prior to the 1dMII). For most people, the 5D is very popular because of the full frame sensor.

    I'd go with the 5D in your case.

    I think I read something like that too ... 5D being good for landscape photography.
