I, too, came from the 60D world and made a jump to 5D3. My initial decision was purely because 5D2 was a few years old model with still a $2K price tag, where as 5D3 seems to be more fitted for moderate to heavy motion on the subject side.  Once I got a hold of it and actually took some pictures, I came to the conclusion that I can leave the EF-S behind. Was planning to pass my 60D to my wife, but end up getting her a 5D3 too as she also sees the big difference in IQ and AF success rate (which make the photo selection workflow A LOT tougher ;P ).

Photo selection workflow doesn't have to be tougher. First, you can set the filenames from the two 5d3's differently.

Secondly if you're using lightroom, simply add a metatag depending on who's camera you're importing the images. Problem solved.

I think he means that because so many more photos are in focus, there are so many more photos to choose from.
