Don't forget the crop factor. I'm not sure if you're comfortable with the focal length of your 50mm, but with FF, the sensor will now peek into the corner of the lenses, giving you a "wider" (I know that's not proper but I don't know how else to explain it) FoV on the 5D compared to your 60D.

So if you're comfortable with and want to keep the 50mm FoV you have now, something to keep in mind

I'm aware yes, one of the main reasons why I want it, that and sexy bokehness 50mm is a little tight.

It'll be quite the decision.. It's a bit of a dinosaur of a camera, not sure if I'll like it. No where to try one out..

I had my hands on one before. Great camera, excellent IQ. The only reason I kept my 50D and didn't ditch it for a 5DC was because the LCD was too low-res for me.

True, and 50mm is pretty awesome on FF, especially wide open. Much shallower DOF.

I almost hate the LCD on my 60D because it's too high res, It makes everything look better than it really is, lol. The difference isn't toooo big between the 50D and 5D. 70,000 Pixels.

Wha? The 50D's rear LCD has 3x the pixels as the 5D's (920k vs 230k). And if you might miss the high res LCD on your 60D after using one of the older bodies. When I had the 40D, I would not notice small amounts of motion blur or slight OOF on the LCD, which would stick out on a monitor.

50D has 920k dots, 5D has 230k. But dots != pixels. Low res screens are weird.

1800 for a new D700? :O

I'm a little stuck between the D700 and 5DII

I'm not all investing in Nikon anymore so I don't have a problem switching. But the 5DII offers video over the D700. That being said I am not to fond (or maybe familiar) the Canon's ergonomics... Hm.

Maybe rent a 5DII and give it a shot. You might find that you just aren't used to it, as many are quick to dismiss the handling and ergonomics of one or the other brand having only handled a body briefly. The jog wheel and joystick combo on Canon mid-level and pro bodies is fabulous.
