The 5D kit would be way too powerful by comparison, so lets try:

Not at all. I am still waiting. Don't be afraid. Please suggest your 5D 1.7 kg kit par preference.

Canon T3

Inferior to the GH2 in most respects. Why would I want to use that instead of a GH2?

Tokina 10-17

Doesn't exist. The 10-16 that does exist is inferior to the Pany 7-14 in at least four ways: a) MTF, b) flare, c) maximum FOV, d) range of focal lengths (1.6x vs 2x zoom).

Tamron 18-270VC

Mediocre optically like most superzooms. Mediocre buld quality. Can't match the 14-45 combined with the 45-200 in either respect.

Canon 50 1.8

No star optically. Cheap build. Not on a par with the Minolta MD 50/1.4.

And, on top of that, where's your equivalen to the Panasonic 20/1.7?
