All this negative commentary on the 5D Mk III has become a joke!

I agree - Is the 5D Mk III more general purpose?

When I upgraded I realised that I shot a bit of almost everything (landscapes, portraits, abstract, animals, reportage but not sports). Looking at the output form my 5D Mk II the pixel count and DR was good enough but I had about 15-20% of images which where out of focus. Also I found when shooting at night I was not using high enough shutter speeds as I was not confident with the ISO above 1600 on the Mk II. Therefore, for me the 5D Mk III was a real upgrade.

CAN I ASK FOR COMMENTS FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE UPGRADED FROM THE 5D Mk II TO THE MK III. DO THEY DISAGREE AND THINK THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN HIGH ISO PERFORMANCE? For me the improvement in high ISO seems significant as I have already stated I now shoot at ISO 6400 without hesitation.
