5d m2 too old? Need a wise answer please.


A few weeks ago i picked up the 5dm2 from ebay for 1850$ brand new. Now i have the chance to sell it at the same price, but i'm not much sure what to do. I hear rumors, which are most likely reality, about the nikon d600. It would be sold at the same price or even lower, but will come with much better specifications.
Is the 5dm2's technology, performance and IQ outdated already?

I know the pentax k-5 has a better sensor than the 5dm2 and it is a cropped sensor.
I don't own expensive canon glass, and i'm not loyal to any camera brand.

What do you say, risk 50-100$ if i decide to repurchase the same camera, in case the price goes higher, or invest in canon lenses and be stuck with the 5dm2.

I have a feeling that the new aps-c cameras will match and exceed the IQ of the 5dm2 at a much lower price, and i'll fell bad because i was an idiot who pruchased such an old camera (2008-9 released)...
What do you folks think? I'd appreciate your opinions.

Canon EOS 5D Nikon D600 Pentax K-5
