Well I wouldn't say I am just a hobbyist as I show and sometimes sale some of my photographs in galleries. I also have my own buisiness and shoot for myself but others as well. My main photography is Landscape, Street Photography and others. But I do shoot for local school sports teams and some local businesses as well.
If you are shooting sports then get the 5D3. I just got one for volleyball and shot my first game last weekend. I was pulling the trigger in awe of how much better it was than my 5D2. It was hard to make it not hold focus. The 5D2 just frustrated me to no end as it hunted around. Although in its defense it worked pretty good for soccer. And as others have attested to I took several ISO 12800 shots that look amazing. The high ISO IQ on the 5D3 can let you use cheap and light lenses effectively.
And I also can't say enough for the silent shooting mode. I can get a snap of the dogs and they don't wake up anymore ;-)
