I shoot sports and I'm young and I wasn't able to afford the 1D X (that was never an option) and I had used my school's 7D for a while, and I knew the day the MK III was announced that I would get it one day. I got it a year later and I'm very happy. The only thing I would wish for would be higher FPS, maybe a little lighter, and if the SD slots would be faster. The FPS I find is too slow for baseball, because for a pitcher and batter I don't need continuous auto focus, and I find with 6 fps it's harder to make contact with the ball with the bat. It works great indoors, where the AF doesn't slow down at all, unlike the 7D while shooting.
