If I had to give up the 5D3, I would probably choose a 6D or 7D over the 1DIII (due to size & weight). Good luck!
In trying to help the op you are all making me want to buy the 135L. I have the 70-200L IS 2.8 and I love it but I want, I want I want.... creamy bokeh, lighter weight. Perhaps I should start up another thread lol.
I know for a fact that some of the cheaper lenses were not properly focused on the point shown in the cropped image area, by accident...while the more expensive lenses like the 200mm f/2.0 were properly focused. That alone makes a night and day difference when pixel peeping.
G15, Sony RX100, Panasonic LX7, Panasonic GF5, Oly PM1, Nikon J1, Nex F3 and 5R, Sony A57. These are all gone
Fuji X10 - and yes, I prefer it to RX100, though technically it's not better...
I think in this situation, less is more. I would bring the 5DMIII, the 70-200, and either the 24-70 or the 50mm.
Less is more.
I agree, the 70-200 and 24-70 would be exactly what I would bring
Maybe I should rent another lens. Any recommendations on a lens to really show what the 6D is capable of, IQ wise?
Yes ... You are crazy to sell your Canon gear ... Especially because two months back you were seeking advice as to how to improve your gear -
Give it 6 months and if you don't find yourself craving for the DSLR IQ, Sell your gear.
+1. Give it some time and live with your gear.
From everything you write the 70-300L is your lens
You should also think about what it is you may be shooting in the future, if you think you may get into sports or shoot 70-300 in poor light then that is when the 70-200 f/2.8 is ii may be best, but for now I would think the 70-300L f/4.5-5.6 IS USM is your best bet.
The viewfinder was decent, much preferred to the Electronic viewfinder on the EOS-M and other ILC's.EOS-M does not have an "Electronic viewfinder"
I think that you will be fine with either for both cities and landscapes. I would probably choose the 24-105, just from the point of having a bit more focal length to play with.
How about a good pocket P&S also? Not much weight and could extend your focal range. The 50X Canon PS SX50 HS gives good IQ and tremendous super telephoto range.
Post some photos when you get back.
I'll order the 50mm 1.4 next week.
