Poll

I'm not buying a 5D Mark III because...

Too expensive
Sensor is the same as the 5D Mark II .. WTF? (Banding, noise, DR ...)
It's not really a 5D Mark III, it is a 5D Mark IIn
All of the above
I already bought one (or more) and I'm using it, what's your problem?
Upgrading from APS-C is more expensive than just a body upgrade
I don't own any Canon equipment yet so...
Still doesn't have a assignable/dedicated MLU button
Too big and heavy, the way forward is smaller and more compact... (EVIL/MILC)
I've ordered it, just waiting, any day now...
I'm simply not interested in the 5D Mark III or full frame cameras, give me crop!
I bought one and sent it back already, don't want another.!
I'm getting a 1DX instead.
Then I'll need newer, non-Canon, raw software that I can't run
When XXXX come out with a full frame camera for < $2000, bye bye Canon..!
Nikon's D800 has made a convert of me
I don't suffer from upgraditis

I use crop and FF bodies. Both are great at what they do, but 3500$ for a 5D3 plus the support it will need will be too expensive for me to justify over my aging, die hard, 5Dc.

5D3 - 3500$
Windows 7 Pro retail - 250$
RAM to run Win7 - 200$
Lightroom 4 to process RAW files - 150$

Total for moving to a 5D3
4100$ + Tax.

Ouch. Too much $$$$ for what i offers compared to just 1700$ for a MK2. Easy choice.

Will the 1 MP difference between the 22 MP files of the 5DIII and the 21 MP files of the 5DII mean you won't need to upgrade your computer?

Just curious as to how you process now.  Why would you need all that extra stuff for Mk III and NOT the Mk II?  Compatability?

Windows XP Pro supports Lightroom 3 and the 5D2. <------My old faithful OS.

Lightroom 4 threw that out of the window as they no longer support Win XP. Now i'll need 8gb of RAM to run Win7 smoothly, Retail copy of Win7 for re-installs, and lightroom 4 itself to process.

I can process my 18mp 7D files great and the few 5D2 files I have easily with my current system. The 5D3 would throw the proverbial Wrench in my workflow.

Bummer :(

I know. A price drop to 2999$ for the 5D3 would aid me in switching my workflow over to a new OS and LR4. Its just not economical at the moment for me to consider a MK3 when the MK2 could do 90% of what I'll need.

On the same token, The AF of the 5Dc and MK2 aren't quite up to speed... like the 7D's AF.  It spoiled me a bit with excellent AF and I want that AF performance out of my 5D, just not for 4 grand. Thats 1Ds3 territory monies...

I've been Considering the 1Dsmk2 as it has 7 Cross type AF sensors and its 1500$.
