Canon EOS 5D 12.8 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body Only)
This is my second 5D body, bought to replace a 40D once I realised just what a quantum leap the full-frame sensor is over the crop sensor of the 40D - even though the 40D is a more modern design. I use one body with a 24-105 f4L, and the other with my 100-400 L which I use primarily for aviation shots.

Well, call me picky but I'm disappointed that this lens isn't a huge improvement on the optical performance of the Canon EF 28-135mm IS, but more than this, I'm amazed at the barrel distortion at 24mm. It is correctable using PSPro or (with a little more effort) Photoshop, and perhaps I'm expecting too much, even of an L lens! That said, the build quality and "Rolls-Royce" feel is what you're pay...
