I'm in the same quandary as the OP. What features are missing from the 5D3 that are included in the 1Ds3 that you feel you need? I'm wondering if I've missed something.

1) the mini-joystick to move the AF selection (instead of the dials)... i find this easier and faster

5D3 has the mini-joystick as well as a second one on the battery grip.

2) the LOCK switch... so you can lock your setup (safety)

5D3 has a locking mode dial and the rear dial can be locked.

3) my fave!! the GRID LINES!! this is really an excellent feature!!

5D3 has grid lines available in the menu, it also has an electronic level.

4) "100% 1-Click Zoom" (on the AF point selected) on your photo taken... great way to check quick to see if you are in focus or not

I have the set button programmed for 100% zoom on the focus point with just one press.

and hmmmm... there should be few more...

Have you actually ever held a 5D3 in your hand?
