If you plan to take this on a trip I would recommend you rent the 70-200 f2.8 II and carry it around with the 5D Mark III all day and see how you feel at the end of the day. I have this lens and love the images but it IS HEAVY to carry around all day on a trip. I am considering a 70-300 f/4-5.6L for travel it is 1 lb lighter and I don't shoot wide open as much for travel pictures. I can't imagine the image quality of the 70-300 will come close to the 70-200 but it is heavy to carry all day. If you plan to use an extender you might do better with a 70-300 it depends on what you plan to shoot. I sure you will get a lot more opinions.
