I'm pretty much in the same boat, only with a 5D MK1 and while I am not making a living out of photography per se, I'm using it to supplement my work in 3D. So while I don't really NEED an upgrade, some of the quirks in the 5D are starting to bother me, especially compared to rentals 5D MK2s and 7Ds that I found myself using when I needed to shoot some videos.
Anyway, finally I decided to buy a 7D now and probably get the 5D MK3 sometime next year. My reasoning was that while I could wait a couple of months for the new 5D to come out, it 1) Might not really come so quickly and B) I'll probably won't lay money down to preorder it as I'll want to read some full reviews first. That obviously means I will have to wait for a regular or semi-regular stock and that probably means sometime well into 2012.
