Which full frame body?

I'm having withdrawls, after having my 60D for 3 weeks I left it sitting in grid at the last autoX with a bunch of my other stuff, and the guy behind me ran it over (well hit it anyway) sensor for the battery door broke off so it won't turn on. Had to send it in to Canon for 6-8 weeks for them to repair it :(

Aside form that, I have been eyeing some wide angle glass. I got to play with Austin's 28 a bit and really did like it. I basically just want something to walk around with if I am out and about and don't want to carry other lens' with me. I currently just have the 50 1.8 and 55-250, so I have nothing for shooting landscapes or anything relatively wide angle lol. I am really liking the Sigma 17-70, $400, F2.8-4, macro, stabilized, etc. Played with one when I brought my camera in and it seems pretty nice for the price.

She hasn't lived there then. haha. At least not in the winter, or middle of summer, or mildly uncomfortable weather outside. I'm quite sure they just didn't use insulation in 1900.
Does she want pics of the inside? haha.

Got to put the new glass through the paces this past weekend. I'll post a few photos when I get home tonight. No cars, though...
