5D daft thought

I was browsing through my local camera dealer idly and came across a 5D MKI and had a daft thought. I can trade in my old 10-20 and have this camera (paired to my 17-40) for just over 200. I only shoot up to A3, for the work I had in mind I mainly shoot at low ISO on the tripod and I can get back to my 50mm lens being a 50mm one. Plus I get to keep my crop camera.

daft moment or sensible suggestion??

Seconded, unless it's had a hard life for that price it's a steal.

Trade in John you won't regret it. Your 17-40 will give you virtually the same field of view as the 10-20
