    I would go with the 50d. I did and used the extra money to get a few lenses and focusing on learning.

    I'd take the 5d over the 50d unless you absolutely need the extra fps, 3 more mp, or the (slightly) better AF.

    you are debating between an $1100 camera and what a $2k+ camera?

    Oh, so you're lazy and looking to be spoon fed? That's pretty much what I figured.

    Go do your homework and stop wasting everyone's time. :ugh2:

    do you have any canon lenses already?

    if you've got a nice selection of EF-S lenses might as well get the 50d
    if not, get the 5d, and get some nice L glass like a 17-40 and a 24-70

    I have both the 5D MKI & II. At below ISO 1600 at web resolutions, most won't notice a difference between the two bodies.

    The AF system on the 5D bodies are more than capable. I have a 1D MKII which does have a better AF system but the 5D can hold its own. I've done panning shots with the 5D with success. The main difference will be when the AF is used off center, which is where the 1D series bodies have a big edge, but most keep it in the center AF point.

    Any way, the 50D isn't anything special other than the new LCD. The 40D produces better image quality (pixel density). Unless you plan on shooting wildlife or sports, the 5D is probably the better overall choice unless you need the crop factor.

    ps. FPS is over-rated.
