Dude, take it from me. Money first on glass. Body is the last upgrade since they will reflect more on your work that the camera body.

Your lenses will be the main tools here. You pick a high end body and slap on a f/4 or even a f/5.6 lens, still resorts you using high ISO's and yield grainy pictures vs a faster lens weather its a prime or zoom. Better glass will suit better pictures before body unless you need lightening AF and clean ISO use but then think to yourself, does that justify the cost of a new camera?

I opted for a 5D not because my skills were lacking, but for what I wanted out of it. When I had my 400D, I sat and shot beside a 1D shooter with virtually the same lens, could anyone tell the difference? Nope.

EDIT : What lenses do you currently own?
