If you are shooting landscapes why not to consider Samyang 14 2.8? sharpness and CA control is awesome even wide open!

I own a 7D, and just sold a 5DII. The 5DII blew the 7D away in IQ in my opinion. Going to a full frame body will make your 50 a bit wider than on your cropped body. It is tough to say, because both are a big step up in IQ (an L lens or a 5DII). Most will tell you to go with lenses, as they are a long term investment, but i think once you try a full frame body (the 5DII is an awesome camera and is priced right now that the 5DIII is out) you will love it. I'm going to go against the lens idea and recommend the 5DII to you. Get a good lens when you build up cash again and you will be amazed all over again, as an L lens on that body gives amazing IQ.Thank you for your advise, I'll keep it in mind!
You didn't post what lens you will be using on the 5DII. Will you keep the 50 1.4 and have that as your only lens?Yes, 50 1.4 will be the only one,
I don't know about your budget, but since you already own that nice 135L and you seem not so happy with your 18-55, why don't you add some L primes? Perhaps a 24L or 35L might be a good choice.
If I were you I would hold back buying a standard zoom like the 24-105 until you buy it in a bundle with a 5D Mark III.
Where in the USA do you plan to be?As I say it doesn't matter for me.
You will probably get a better response if you give some additional details, such as:
- city or area you will be or would like to be based in
- expected arrival date
- number of hours available e.g. part-time or full-time, during week only or nights & weekends etc.
- desired compensation
