I agree with Doug.  I have both the Canon 1DMII and the 5D and the 5D 
is much better because it is full-frame.  Even though the 1DMII is a 
bigger, heavier, professional camera with incredible battery life, I 
usually end up using the 5D because the full-frame files are so much 
better.  HOWEVER!  I would wait for the R10 which will blow the 
Canons out of the water ;-)
