Wrong advice, in my opinion

Get good lenses first and a cheaper body. It will give you visible better pictures for years than the other way around. Also, lenses keep their price. Your coveted and expensive 5Dii can be had for much less or will be left in the dust by the 5Diii one day - and you can the upgraded body later in stead = better pictures now & better pictures when you have saved a little more. Clearly a much, much better way to move forward.

Find the OP a less expensive Full Frame alternative... Right, there isn't one. If we were talking about going from one cropper to another, you'd have a point. But he's not, he's going from crop to FF. If he were to take your advice, he'd never buy a crop body. Or at least a new one.
