Good choice

I've never heard of anyone who regretted of getting 5D3. I am sure you would be happy with it for a decade. 24-105 is a good lens of an unmatched convenience. The IQ is good, but often not the best on moderate contrast subjects. Don't fall in a trap of not noticing this, as many do. Have something to compare and remind you of what images should look like. One simple option is Canon 50/1.4 stopped down to f/4 or f/5.6. When you see it's creamy colors compared to 24-105, you would start saving for 24-70 II or just thinking of using more primes instead. Good luck!
