I shoot almost exclusively landscape photographs, so lots of the upgrades in the 5DMKIII don't seem relevant to me.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

No question - 5D2. I bought mine in July this year and still happy with the choice: easy to handle, RAW-files are really good with lot's of headroom. Coming from Nikon I was a bit afraid of loosing quality in wideangle but even my 17-40 is a good choice. I would invest more money in lenses, bodies can be exchanged every year and there is always this big marketing-machinery working hard to tell you why you need the newest technique, sensor, autofocus, etc....Quite a lot of people are deeply influenced by this, gearheads though. Take a look at flickr or whatever, search for landscapes being done with 5DII and you may be convinced.....

Good luck!
