Yeah i think the 70-200 f4 is seems like it would be a good option not to have to crop so much sometimes

The 5D3 holds up fine against the D800 and clearly beats the 5D2. What I find interesting is the chroma noise in the D800 starting at 6400 - all those magenta splotches (blech!) where the 5D3 is still true black.
Trust me... it's worth it.
He didn't mention the D800 once, do we have to turn every thread into a 5DIII vs D800 battle?
Also no one has mentioned the fact that he is financing this camera and has to make payments on it for the next year. If this was an impulse buy and you really don't need it, you may want to go for a 5DII or save up for it, why pay interest?
I'm worried about the payments for you, not your level of satisfaction with the 5DIII. Don't listen to the haters, the 5DIII is awesome and I am very happy with the improvements and I've been shooting with the 5DII for several years. T2i to 5DII was a massive jump, so 60D to 5DIII will be equally huge. It's an awesome camera and I guarantee you that you will be happy with it. The people that are hating on it had unreasonable expectations, they've had years to speculate what it would be like and people get their minds set on the idea of what it could be like. They expected the same level of "wow" that the 5DII created, but that's just not possible at this time, shallow DOF on a camera that cheap was unheard of in 2008.
I would not rely on the cheaper full frame later in the year at all, that was CR1 which means the guy could have just made it up. After the flood of traffic from the 5DIII I'm sure he's desperate to keep traffic stats up, so he has to throw something out there. I mean we've gotten the 1DX, 5DIII, supposedly the cinema dslr and t4i, how many bodies can they release in a year? I'd take it with a grain of salt, now just wait until your 5D shows up and go enjoy it, you'll love it.
