Re: Wrong priority...

It doesn't get much better than a set of prime lenses and the 5DII. You won't gain quality over time just convenience.

Canon doesn't have a normal zoom lens currently without significant tradeoffs, and all reports point to them releasing a new upgraded one in the near future to so it's best not to buy lenses currently unless you're looking at telephotos.

Full frame bodies also hold their value significantly better than crop bodies and have MUCH longer upgrade cycles.

Plus a set of primes with a 5DII will be a great learning tool.

  • just my opinion.
