I would look at the 1Ds3 as the pro version of the 5D MarkII. In my opinion it's the best DSLR that Canon ever made. I'd have one if I had the extra cash sitting around to get a mint body. But I'm sure a lot of people would disagree with that. I look at cameras still as replacement for film. Anything over, say, ISO 800 is more or less irrelevant for me. Nice to have at times, but not a selling point. I recently brought along my 5DII and a rented 5DIII and did not see enough of a difference in the results to justify the upgrade. Yes, the AF is faster and better, but also more cumbersome to fully take advantage of. So I ended up getting about the same keeper rate.

6D may be interesting for street photography because of its size. For studio or anything else where you work with flash or strobes I'd want something with a better x-sync speed though.

I personally would get the 1Ds3 for studio and take the 5D for street.
5DII - 50L - 135L - 200 2.8L - 24-105 - 580EXII - 430EXII - FD 500/8 - AE1-p - bag full of FD lenses

I have a 1d mark 3 and the pixel is more than enough for internet and anything less than 20x20 print. I can even crop a photo very tight and still come out with a good print. How much more with the 20+ pixel of 1ds mark 3. I've rented the 5d mark 2 and 3 and personally i don't like the file they produce. Unlike the 1d(s) series, i can push their file and still give me a good result. I did the same with the 5d's and i didn't like the result.

Bottom line: get the 1ds mark 3

Definitely...I have a 1D3 and 1Ds3, and having used all the 5d's (not mine), I'd have to agree that while the 5's files may be newer and the high ISO better, I don't shoot much above 800. So, the 1's files are much more realistic and smoother. A lot of it has to do with the AA filter choices, but something about the RAW data is that much more. Plus, I hate small cameras...
