Well, I am really hoping to get these lenses sold.  Should be very easy to move them as they are all under a year old and I only used the 10-22 2x.  The 70-200 a few times more than the 10-22 and I used the 17-55 2.8, but cleaned it and kept it in perfect condition.  Also have all boxes and papers for them.  The T4i is only 6 mos old.  Ordering my 24-70 2.8 II this week and the 70-200 F 2.8 II after I sell my EF-S lenses.

You will fall in love with this selection of gear. The 70-200 LII does excellent portraiture and i see thats what you do a lot so this is your 85mm Lens. At 200mm F2.8 is pretty darn shallow! The focus is whip fast. If you have kids in sports it will be great for that.

Once you snap that 24-70 II on your 5D III, I don't think you ever want to go back to your 4ti with 17-55 ever again ;D

I am curious about the 6d, the focus in -3 stops is interesting but just because they mention it doesn't mean the 1dx and 5dm3 don't have the same sensitivity.

The 5DIII and 1D X are spec'd to AF down to -2 EV, older 1-series bodies (1DIV, etc.) to -1 EV, and most other bodies (5DII, 7D, xxD, xxxD) to -0.5 EV.
I thought it was -2 i just didn't want to blab and get it wrong w/o confirming it with my memory and the facts since i didn't feel like researching it to confim my memory was correct. Funny thing is i kinda thought you might bring your knowledge on the subject. :D I'm not kidding!
Neuro, what do you think the benefits and results of -3 ev will mean for shooters?

Yeah I use my 85, but my favorite pics from that girls senior pics and the Greek goddess shoot were all from the 100 L Macro.  My street zombie pics were the 24-105 and the 35L with a speed light.  I seriously can't wait to get my 24-70 Mkii and my 70-200.  My buddy has the 70-200 2.8 Mk I.  How much better is the mark II

Yeah, get yourself a 5D II while you can, they're goin cheap and it's a great back up camera to your mk III. Sell all the ef-s lenses, non IS 70-200 and t4i that should help fund your dream setup!

Setup - 24-70 ii on the mkiii and either a the 85 on the other body or a the 70-200ii. keep the 600rt's handy. Like someone keep the kit light.

For alt flash trigger check out photix oden, or pixel kings as a cheaper alternative to Canon.

OK, ordered my 24-70 mk2.  Now I need to sell my 70-200 f4, my 24-105 f4, my 10-22 and my 17-55 so I can upgrade my 70-200 2.8 mk2 and maybe a 16-35

this is all good info.  I'm selling my 10-22, 24-105, and 60D as well.  I already have the 24-70 II but I think I need to take my lenses to Canon (down the street) to get everything calibrated.  Do you guys think I should just get FoCal instead?.... or both Canon Service and use FoCal?

I'd first do a AFMA.  (Get FoCal).  Only consider having Canon adjust your lens if it has a actual problem.  Canon will put the lens on a reference body like a 5D MK III and calibrate it to that body.  Your body might still be different, so don't bother.  The next new body you get will need a different adjustment, so just use FoCal.
