Upgrading from 5D2, 7D & 60D.  Still have these and will sell the 7D and 5D2 after receipt of 5D3.  Only reason to hold onto the 60D is the articulating screen and SD card format which works OK with Wi-Fi cards.
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

Okay, decided to put this question in the form of a poll as I should have done from the start.  :-[

5DC and 1DIIn. I'll be keeping one of them as a backup, but I hate the thought of selling either of them. I love them both.

What they heck, I'll reply for the easy post count. :)

I'm coming from the T3i. I do video for business and photo for mostly pleasure.

Switching over from Nikon. I shoot mostly weddings. Currently using a D3S and D700. I ordered a pair of 5D3's and got my first one in today. The focus system works at least as well as my Nikons even in low light. So far I have only used the 50mm 1.4 lens but will be shopping for more glass tomorrow.

Upgrading from a 40D. 

My interest has been evolving towards low-light photography (where the 40D is totally inadequate) with a bit of landscape and indoor sports as well.

I did not feel the 5D2 or 7D were the right choices for an upgrade (for very different reasons), but with the 5D3 I am getting the best of both worlds...

From 7D and 5D Classic. Sold the 5D and waiting for the 5D MK III. 7D stays as backup.
