    Very Good Lens Example Cannon L lens (EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM) With maybe a 40D

    or Good Body 5dmk2 and average lens (EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM )?
    Just my 2 cents, its does nt make sense to spurge over 3K for a body and cheap out on lens as u shd be aware of the rate of depreciation of body over lens (5Dmk2 may cost 3.8K nw but 3 yrs lapsed, my bet it's worth may dipped by as much as 50%)..

    Lens on the other hand do depreciate but at a less exaggerated rate than bodies, some even appreciated to a extent it fetches 30% nw for a new one in the mkt (Gd example : AFS 17-35mm f2.8 sells for ard 2K 8 yrs ago, nw cost 3K new)

    Whatever lens u invest nw shd be used on your body nw or the next and the next.

    I will tk option 1 if i will u.. and upgrade to a FF body when u have the dough

    yup, and if you need to go any wider,

    there's still the 16-35 MK II and the 14mm f/2.8 L

    technically lens are more value for money then bodies,

    as some lenses take a long time to be upgraded whereas bodies get introduced at a 2 or 3 years basis,

    and hence the lens would in this case be a better investment, as they don't become obsolete as quick.
