Return to the question
I'm looking into upgrading to a full format camera (mostly for pleasure and maybe some money on the side shooting weddings) and 5d seems to have the best price to performance ratio.

However, I see that a lot of reviewers mention that they use the L series lenses. For an amateur photographer the prices seem a bit steep as the fast ones go for well over $1000.

So my question is, is it even worth buying a 5d (or any other full frame camera for that matter) if i'm not willing to shell out thousands of dollars for the best lenses?
If you had to choose between high quality glass or a pro body, opt for the better glass.
