I have a chance to rent one or the other of these for a night-time event this Saturday; I have my 5D2, 24-70 f/2.8L II and 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. The rental place closest also has a 135 f/2L on offer.
So what to do? I lean toward the 5D3 for the fact that I can use the batteries I have too; I have enough CF cards that those won't be an issue either.
If the lighting is similar I should be able to get around 1/80" at f/2.8 (a requirement) at ISO 3200-4000. That leads to the question: Is the 5D3 enough or is the 1Dx worth the learning curve?
I'll attach an image from a similarly-lit event for context once I have one processed.
