60D or 5D

Hi all,

I currently own a 60D, a 24-105 f/4 L, and a 50 f/1.8. I was wondering if I should straight swap the 60D for an original 5D. This will then give me the full frame advantage,  turning the 38mm equivalent of the 24-105L on a crop body feel like a 24mm. This would also turn my 50 f/1.8 into a slightly wider prime, which is what I want at the moment. It will also give me a shallower depth of field for both lenses. Are there any other things I should be aware of when making this jump. I'm not so worried about the loss of megapixels, or the added weight. Also, what are your thoughts on getting the 5D as well as keeping the 60D? I want to get into more landscapes and kinda wider portraits. I am not too fussed about low light, it's quite rare to do a night event.

Thanks in advance,
