I've used a Ds3 for years, from BIF to macro work, and have yet to find it lacking in any scenario.  The only caveat I would add is that it's "low light" is somewhat less than stellar.
BUY the glass my friend!      ;)

We have a rather nice local park that is quite popular with the local Pros, weddings/portraits,...I've never seen any of them not have a 70-200 mounted on their body.        ;)

Is this a need or want scenario...I'm asking because I'm in the same boat, with me it's a want more than need.
 If the new 7D has 24 MP, I'll buy it as an adjunct, otherwise wait on the big MP one...if I live that long.       ;D

Macro / Fuzzy thing

Handheld 180 macro mounted on a 1Ds3 and "stacked" in CS6.

Another series...

We happen to live near a very photogenic park four years I have never seen a 70-200 f/2.8 not being used for portrait/wedding work.

I fail to understand why anyone who is not a professional would even own a is not cost effective.
What are ya gonna do with a plethora of prints...ya only have so much wall space...shoe box in the closet like your grandmother did?
There are a myriad of on-line printing companies that usually cough out better results, at a far cheaper price in the long term, than you could hope for.

I doesn't take a genius to use the ruler method if you're adept at Photoshop focus stacking.
Simply take a series of images at incremented adjustments>import them into PS as layers and stack them...the masks will tell you where you ought to be.       ;)

I do crop...after I've taken series of overlapping images and photo-merged them in Photoshop.

But you can only capture what is in front of you at the time can only capture what is in front of you, but...with superior PP you can "create" much more.

I see a whole lot of introduced noise.      ;)

Why worry about skin tones...when ya shoot in RAW, you adjust skin tones in your PP software using the methods previously mentioned. do shoot in RAW...right.
