    Whatever that gets the job done would be important la... d'oh. If you're a sports photog, you're using a 5D, you're asking for trouble – not that you can't do with a 5D but there's a better DSLR. If you need 200mm reach, you're using 17mm, you're also asking for trouble... so... both are equally important when you know your ****.

    What's the use of keeping 10 bodies and 1 lens. To me lens is more important. Technology so advance ... every 1-2 years I can change the body but the high quality lens stays.

    Body is important and thus need to research properly. Coz once bought, you are likely to get stuck to a certain brand, especially the lenses are expensive. For my case an upgrade from D60 to D90 is a great difference. Some pictures are not achievable without this upgrade especially when I shoot alot of indoor events.

    But being said, lenses are important too because each of them has their unique use. The purpose of using SLR/DSLR is such that you can change lenses for specific genre. (I wont go further into why we need to change lenses or use DSLR to get ideal results).

    I take a neutral stand to your question and I emphasize that each person's case is different and should not be debated.

    I'm wondering which would produce a better IQ, a 5D II with EF-S 18-55 or a 500D with EF-S 17-55?

    The question should be what is what surrounding condition and type of photography that you are doing.

    If you are taking a studio condition, with both camera both on tripod shooting at ISO 100, F10, shutter release, etc. I would say unless you pixel-peep the result is min.

    On the other hand if you want to shooting bokeh. I would have no doubt a 17-55 would be better than a 18-55 given all condition (include the pg) remain the same except for the body.
