Seriously consider the 5D classic. You won't do any better for your money - that much I feel very comfortable guaranteeing.

While I haven't used a full frame camera, Cory and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' mike_311 may be right. Before you spend any money, you should certainly read up on the differences between full frame and crop sensors. Different people have different requirements and the sensor choice will have a big influence on your choice of lenses too.

The D5100 is an awesome starter body. Cheap, too....

' ramblinr sold all of her canon gear to fund her m43 addiction :-) I won't go that far yet... But I am close. I will keep the 7D for certain applications. But I just have to say that the best camera is the one you have with you and the OM-D is almost always with me. I can put it in my purse and almost forget I have it. I can sling the camera over my shoulder and have 3 lenses in my purse and not really know they are even there. You certainly can't say that about the 7D.

I'm telling you, the OM-D is outstanding. You do have to use a different mindset when you are out but it suits me and I find I am more of a participant instead of a photographer. Hard to explain but I'm loving it.

Yes, Slickchick is correct.
Initially sold: Canon 60d, 15-85, 10-22, 60 macro, 430ex, 580ex, 580exII, ST-E2, 1.4x converter and was left with a small Canon kit of 7d, 17-55, 70-200, 580exII flash.
The small leftover canon kit is currently pending sale, was fortunate that someone will be taking the lot. It's a great kit and they will love it.
Made the huge mistake of playing with and EM5 when getting some photos printed ... just loved it.
I much prefer the small size of the EM5 and the lenses are amazing with more to come. After using the EM5 for a while I find I just couldn't be bothered picking up the 7d and the heavy lenses.
Everyone has different needs and I think the EM5 will be perfect for my shooting style.

If you are looking for interchangeable lenses on a small system do look at the m4/3 range, you may be surprised.

Here are a few shots from it.
Always wanted a fisheye and the Samyang one is excellent and soooo much fun.
Also some portraits.
