K5 or save for 5D mark II ?? Somebody sell me on the K5 (or not)

I'm an enthusiast bordering on semi-pro. I really dig portrait photography and make a few bucks here and there. I already own a K200 that I pair with the 16-50 2.8 and the 5o-135 2.8. I also have a few softboxes with some Pentax-specific wireless remotes & generic monolights.

I've been dreaming of the Canon 5D mark II as my dream camera and with the Mark 3 coming out, the mark II should be cheaper to come by. BUT... I have nothing Canon in my photo bag.

Want to do more "pro" work and potentially make the leap.

What would you do if you were me? K5 or 5D mark II

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Pentax K-5
