Currently have 1DMkIV, 1DMkIII, 5DMkIII and a few more....   The 1D is a rugged body and amazing fps rate.  The 5DMkIII is lighter, has good AF and high ISO.

I shoot pro dance and on rare occasions must use flash / fill flash, sometimes at a distance, so i prefer not to use HSS.  I HATE, repeat HATE, the X-Sync of the 5D series, 1/200.   Spoiled with the 1/300 of the 1D's.  However, that said, I am impressed with the high iso IQ of the 5DMkIII.  Wish the 1D X had been in the same ballpark $ wise as previous 1D's and would have bought that instead.  The extra $ was a deal breaker in this economy.
