The AF on my first copy died within a few days. Second copy was fine.

Now I've discovered (as have others) that the low light focusing has serious issues, esp if AF Assist is enabled with a flash. It can take 3-5 seconds to lock focus in low light like wedding receptions, etc.I've shot a bunch of wedding receptions with the 5D3 and AF assist enabled on the flash and have had no problem at all. It is a wonderful camera for wedding receptions. With or without flash, the low light autofocus is excellent. If it took 3-5 seconds to lock focus, I would have gotten rid of this camera immediately. I hope you get that problem resolved.
The Sigma 35mm is very tempting. I love their 50 and 85 1.4's! I will wait to see some reviews though.
not only that but 580ex2 will fire at 1/8000 sec with HSS turned off at full power
It's not your trigger system, it's the 5D3. This happens with a 580EX II directly on the body as well!
Henry's offer an additional 3yr warranty on the 24-105 kit for $469 - does anyone have any experience with this? Is it worth it (besides the obvious, "if you don't ever need it - it was a waste of money")?
