I suggest a 2Ti with better glass - 17-55IS

Edit: Or maybe even the T2i !!

For the same $1k, you can get something like the EF 28/1.8, 50/1.4, and 85/1.8, which suit the 5D2 well. You don't get IS with those, but you get large apertures, which let you shoot in very little light.
This is interesting as I have the f/4 glass (24-105L; 17-40L; 70-200L) but I figured I would be ok at F4 given the clean ISO bump you get from the 5d. Also I don't know that I have the skill to focus at f/2.8 and wider.

I guess this puts the camera out for weddings when focus moves all over the place and preset focusing is not an option?
