i would say take the 5d mk2 over the 1d mk3 for the following reasons

smaller form factor
Full frame benefits
if you crop the 5d mk2 image to 1.3 crop you get 10mp anyway so same res as the 1dmk3
about a stop better high iso

the only thing better in the 1dmk3 is weather sealing and good AF (assuming you get a late model that didnt have AF problems)

..and more than twice the framerate, plus all the good stuff to customize. Can't remember if the mkIII had it, but one function I can't live without in the mk4 is the ability to set upper and lower limit of shutterspeed. The only way to shoot concerts.

Manual mode plus auto iso is another way to do this - not possible on the 5DII due to the iso locking at 400

That doesn't get you any faster shutterspeeds... That just gives you the set speed with different noise.

I was putting this as an advantage for the mkIII

The shutterspeed is down to you this way, the camera will expose accordingly
