i dont contest what my friend said.everyone has their own opinions.
just like some swears by canon.
i'm being the most neutral here.as much as i'm a nikon user, i would like to venture into canon to take a peep, and be open to options.
photographers must have free minds.else, you will only see thing from 1 perspective.(i read this somewhere...i not that chim lah!)
i dun belif there's one system that is better than the other. no perfection.
it really depends on who is using them as they are plainly, just tools.
now, post processing is the most important after the fotography in digital age. as most would tell u, shoot in RAW. yeah!
i remember there're a few fotography courses ran by solid pros such as pointblankshoot(cedric). since u can afford good camera equipments, y dun u consider signing up courses with the real guru and professionals such as cedric? his works are awesome!
com'on sis! dun b upset! there're alot more in life than getting upset and discouraged!!!!
You'll Never Walk Alone! - i have the best job in the world!
hmm.. personally i think s5pro is a good option if u are not decided on canon yet. spend the difference on glass
remember, photography is ONLY my hobby.even if i run out of job, i will never go into it lor.
taking course for me a bit serious liao...i cant afford the time either.
i'm already sacrificing alot of time to do shooting.sooner, i'll have to return to my other neglected hobbies.
that's why i appreciate clubsnap.
i learn alot here without having to attend courses.
Hmm i tink for Fuji it has this function to simulate a velvia film like look for ur pics issit not?
first look on s5pro
With all your existing gears, I don't think it make sense for you to get something cheaper like 400D + 85f1.8 as they r not in the same class comparing with the gears you have now for comparison.
Although there is a difference in sensor size, I will agree with most that a 5D + 85L is the best option for you to make comparison.
If you are able to borrow one to try it will be good.
If you really need to buy and wish to stick closer to the $5k budget, one option I can think of is the 5D + 135L, or a 30D + 85L.
As 5D is full frame, partnering it with the 135L will give you a similar perspective comparing with your existing D200 + 105 (1.5x), but probably also ability to achieve shallower DOF due to the full frame sensor.

suggest 30D + 50/1.2L. should be within ur budget.
