Just so you're fully aware, the 5DII is already 4+ years old and already has been upgraded to the 5DIII. It's certainly a better camera than the 60D but if you really get into photography after this course, you still may find the upgrade path tempting, especially related to auto-focus issues.

5DIII is about $1500 more for the kit than is the 5DII. Up to you whether its worth it.

Thanks for the reply. I hope not to be 'clueless' after a 2 year course and want to invest in the best camera I can at the moment so that I don't feel like I should upgrade later (this is on previous advice). I shall look at your recommendations.
