It's the lenses that make the difference and not the DSLRs (as long as they are better then the sensor

joger's current gear

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EF 135mm f/2.0L USM
Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM
x 2 The current state of the art sensor technology from Canon - but not compare to the Sony 36 MPixel sensor which has 40 % more linear resolution and 2 ½ stops more dynamic range
sharp, extremely good bokeh - maybe the best "Bokeh-machine" from Canon to date
maybe the best consensus of weight and reach and optical plus mechanical performance - a dream come true lens to own
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
Canon Extender EF 1.4x III
small & light - the perfect walk around lens - in other words: what's not to like about this lens?
sharp & light - the perfect budget zoom for travel - best optical quality of all current slow zooms from Canon
almost no degradation in AF speed dn optical performance when used on the 300 f/2.8 L IS USM II
Canon Extender EF 2x III
Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L
Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8
not as good as the 1.4x III extender but still in combination with the 300 f/2.8 L IS USM II a very good combination - easily outperforming the bare 70-300 L at 300 mm wide open
the defacto best wide angle lens from all brands - with 115° angle of view

joger's previous gear

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0L USM
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D
Did not like the push pull design and most of all the image quality above 250-300 mm is sub prime compare to other offerings n the market (price independent)
Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
Sigma APO Macro 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM
slow aperture, quite heavy and not much grain over the 70-200 f/4.0 in reach - a classic loose - loose situation
