I'm assuming you're talking about the older 5D and not the Mark II? I'd guess that some of the bells and whistles might be nicer on the 50D, but if you want to move to, or currently shoot full frame, then the 5D would be a nice choice to get started with in the FF arena. Personally, all else being equal, I would go for the 50D, but I'm not interested currently in switching to FF.

yes sorry, the older 5D.

what are the advantages of FF. i know you get more out of the lens when zoomed out, but when zooming in, you lose some of the zoom. if you know what i'm trying to say...

I'd say that the number one thing you tend to get out of most full frame cameras is better image quality and less noise at higher ISO.

You don't actually gain true zoom by going with a DX sensor...it's a crop factor. So it's like cropping the center of a full frame shot when shooting DX.

Stick with the 50D unless you are willing to pony up for new glass (I'm assuming you have ef-s lenses already). Thing to watch for with Canon FF is you cant use EF-S mount lenses since the rear elements protrude to far into the body of the full frame cameras and will hit the sensor.
