I"m torn...

Thanks that's what I needed to know!

I would probably use silent shutter most of the time if I end up buying one.

I like the silent shutter for shooting weddings, but the delay means missed facial expressions when shooting candid ceremony shots...not sure which way I'd jump. One of the frustrations of my 5D is that, by the time the shutter actually gets around to firing, the bride has stopped smiling or looking at the groom. The shorter shutter lag of the 5D3 would help that.
