 my experience is atypical,  but I  was screwed around with a marketplace seller at Amazon and the cable through big-time to get he a solid price on the mkiii. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

XS->60D->5d Mkiii:18-55->24-105L:75-300->55-250->70-300->70-200 f4L USM->70-200 f/2.8L USM->70-200 f/2.8L IS Mkii:50 f/1.8->50 f/1.4->100 f/2.8L->85mm f/1.8 USM->135L -> 8mm ->100L

Id presume this is the worst time of year to buy gear. But I just picked up the 24-70 for less than I have ever seen it so I am happy. From past experience, usually late Nov and early Dec is best. I think IMAP has kept the price higher but you can still find great deals if you wait and look. Also, I only buy from amazon and bh so I do not expect to see prices like the ones you have stated for the 5dIII. Though if I remember right, I think amazon had the 5dIII back in Nov for 2999 or maybe even less for about a day. Good luck and stay patient. It pays off if you don't need the gear right now.
5dIII; 40mm 2.8, 16-35mm 2.8L II, 100mm Macro 2.8L IS, 70-300 4-5.6 IS, 70-200mm 2.8L II, 24-70mm 2.8L II
