    If you really need a new camera, get the 5D. with yr 16-35L, it will be a great partner. However, I would stick to the 400D if I were you. 1Dmk3 is an overkill for yr casual shoot.

    No lah, i want to have a better utilisation of my 16 - 35mm.. i guess the 1D MarkIII is definitely out for me. Good that i consult the gurus here.. save some money for other accessories.. U think i shud stick with the 400 and get the EFS lenses for wide angle shots? In future if i wanna upgrade, i will be stuck with those lenses cos' it won't fit those grade of digicams right..? Any adv..?

    just sell the 16-35 and get the 10-22mm. the 10-22 is a great lens with great colours. depreciation? i dont foresee the 10-22 depreciating much unless canon ditches apsc sensors, which wont happen in the near future

    Excuse me a little. I see this thread in "Newbies Corner" and had a shock when 5D and 1 series are being brought into discussion.

    Do we necessary need to buy expensive full frame camera just for landscape and candids?

    5D FullFrame But I agree that a short term solution is to get the 10-22 for your 400D... You won't lose much selling it off when you decide to move on to FF... You probably lose more now to sell your 400D to get 5D

    i also think this is better served in the canon subforum rather than newbies corner

    From your post, you will do better with 5D.
