While I certainly can't speak for others, on the topic of the 5D Mark III I would never buy a FF camera with lower specs than a crop sensor.

huh? In what sense 5DIII has lower specs than a crop camera? For the first time Canon has a 5D series camera which is complete package with excellent features

The 5D Mark III has 11 stops of DR at ISO100 whereas the Pentax K-5/D7000 has 14/13 
Likewise the 5D Mark III suffers from banding at high ISO and in shadow recovery, in contrast with Pentax K-5 and D7000 which does not.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking anyone shooting the 5D Mark III, and there are doubtless other benefits to consider such as; AF, color and tonal range etc. however... speaking from a personal standpoint, I could never justify upgrading to a FF at the expense or downgrade in dynamic range and low light performance.

Hope this helps.
