The issues Edwin Herdman mentioned are important to me.

I don't want to spend my money on larger & faster memory cards, or computer with faster CPU, more RAM, and more hard disks, to process extra pixels I have no need of. I want to spend my money on lenses and cameras, which is - AFAIK - what Canon sells to it's customers.

As example, rather than buy a new computer, I'd rather buy a new 35/2 lens with USM and better diaphragm to improve bokeh.

Releasing a 5d mkIII should bump down the price of the mkII, right? Make that more accessible to the commoner  ;)

I am in fact a professional photographer. I use 5D2 and 1Ds3... thats the limit of file size I want to deal with. Already, the hard drive space is kinda out of control!

As much as I would love to use the new gear... i dont think I would upgrade due to the trouble of trying to store and handle the amount of drive space.

Just one of my jobs is about 7000 photos.

Seagate will sell you an internal 1TB HD for $45. Wouldn't there be room for a couple of those in a 7000 photo job budget?

Yep, tell me about it, most of my work is P65 these days, and since going all digi in 04 I'm sitting on about 40TB at the mo, and its growing fast!

The new EF 8-15mm f/4 lens, which is supposedly the fisheye lens for APS-C sensors, will cost about twice as much the older FF fisheye, I tend to think the first option is wrong.

its the L fisheye - not the apsc fisheye - not sure why you think that. it's a new interesting lens that gives full frame users the choice of circular and rectilinear fisheye in same lens....
