Re: Does it make sense to upgrade to 5D Mk 1?

The 5D with the 24-105 f4L would get you going. The 18-200 and kit lens cannot be used on the 5D (or any other full frame camera).

As for other lenses, you will have to decide what is most important to you. Size, weight, aperture, length, etc. The 70-200 f4 (with or without IS) would give you a nice mid telephoto. The 70-300 DO is a nice travel lens while the 70-300 IS non-DO is a nice (lower price) alternative that will allow some close up shots (plus the shallow DOF of a full frame is really nice for those shots).
