I recently bought my first DSLR too and I went with a 5D2. I actually bought the 7D first but returned it for the 5D2 as I've always wanted a full frame.
What ever body you choose or format, be warned that good lenses can cost as much as the body itself!
I just bought the 85mm 1.2 and loving it. Now I'm learning how to use if all in preparation for the baby to arrive as this was my intention to bug the gear to begin with. At least that's how I've been able to justify the purchase to my wife :)
