Not to push the wrong buttons here, but one very nice thing about the MkIII is just how nice and clean it renders high ISO jpegs, right out of the camera. I know lots of people on these boards pooh-pooh the idea of shooting jpeg but in many situations it's just way more convenient, and being able to get great images that don't require NR or obnoxious WB color adjustments is like a god-send to me, coming from the 5Dc. You'll need all the free time you can get once that baby arrives, better to spend it doing something useful rather than tinkering with tons of RAW files.

I should also add, I don't know how the MkII handles the above. So for your purposes, that may be something to look into - it may be something the MkIII does better than the II, but I don't want to make that assumption.
