Used 1d Mark III or new 5d Mark II??

Hi all,

I'm planning to buy a "new" camera. I don't have funds for a used/new 1ds Mark III or the potential new Mark IV that will be introduced.

I'm shooting portraits of my 8 months old daughter, enjoy shooting wildlife as well as landscapes. I basically need an all-round camera.

Money wise I'm able to buy a used 1d Mark III or a new 5d Mark II.

I like the idea of the fast auto focus of the Mark III but the FF sensor and high MP (more then double compared to the 1d Mark III) of the 5d Mark II sounds attractive as well.

Is the image quality of the 5d Mark II a lot better then from the 1d Mark III.

Which of both camera's should I buy.

Appreciate your advise.
