What camera settings are you referring to? I tried various things, but I may have missed some. If you can give me some pointers, that'd be great. Thanks.

custom function 5, I believe, high ISO noise reduction.

Anyway, in your recent responses you have added some more useful points that indeed make a better point for a 5D III, like better AF to track a moving subject in low light with limited DOF.

And you should improve on the noise with the less noisy sensor. But you will also loose some of this advantage if you choose a slower lens, going from f1.4 to f2.8.

So, I think most posters here wanted to basically warn you that you spend a lot of money (which is limited as you admit) for a perhaps smaller than you expected improvement.

But if you can afford it, it will be an improvement. And if the a 24-70 f2.8 zoom is too slow, you still can buy primes for the 5D III.
