    Depends on what you need to do with it.

    Need fast AF for action stuff? 1dIII.

    Everything else, 5dmkII

    I had a MkIII
    I sold it for a 5D MkII
    I sold that for a MkIII

    Of course it depends on what you want to do and if you care about video but I liked the MkIII much more than the 5D MkII.

    Honestly, id probably buy a 7d too. I don't think the mkIII is really worth the price difference unless you just absolutely need the weathersealing

    Using two 5dmkIIs doesn't get you usable 12800.
