+1 Same here, I also upgraded to the Mk III and to me, it was well worth it.

To stay within the given budget, move to full frame with either 5D II or 6D. Wait a few more months, and the 5D III will come closer in reach since its price will continue to drop.

IMO you might be better off selling your 50d and putting that towards your new camera purchase. Backup bodies are overrated for non professional shooters. If you pick up a nice 5dII or III you will not want to use the 50d again... I would much rather take the 20 seconds to change lenses (for my non professional uses) vs using a less desirable for half of my shots.

Keep in mind bodies depreciate very quickly...only own what you normally use on a regular basis. If you need a cheap backup buy a rebel xt or xti for $75 and drop it in your bag. In fact I think my 5d depreciated another $10 during the time I used to write this response

The 5D II would be a good choice with the OP's listed glass.

Crop body for a 200mm lens making it 320mm is my reason for keeping the 50D. or adding a 1.4x extender making it a 448mm. Is my reasoning off? from your experience do you go back to it for the reach or should I just buy more glass later or use a 2x.

Thanks
Jeff
