Mark, my oldest, emily, has gotten into photography. I gave her my 7D and got a 5DIII. I love the full frame images, and the autofocus is awesome on the 5D. I wish it had a higher FPS, but I still use my 7D when I need that.

If you go to really big glass it can be economical to switch brands. Canon big glass is more expensive than Nikon (last time I looked).

That Canon 800 looks to be about 4 pounds lighter than my Nikon F4 600. Also cheaper than the new Nikon F5.6 800.
