I have been using 5D Mark II for the last ~4 years with about 17K clicks on it.  I love the camera but can use the faster and better focusing mechanism on the 5D Mark III.  I would like to get your expert assistance on the following questions:

1.  How much I can sell the body only for my used 5D Mark II.  BTW, I am the first owner and camera body is in near new condition.

Not an expert but if you aren't tight on money 5D2 still make a good backup if you dont have a back up already.  You can also carry 2 body with lens attach w/o swapping lens.

2.  Is 5D Mark III much better than Mark II in high ISO performance?

about a stop better in raw and 2 stops OOC jpeg.

3.  What is the best price for the body only in US for 5D Mark III?  I know there is a $200 instant rebate going on right now.

Yes, I am thinking about keeping my 5D Mark II if I by Mark III but budget will be squeezed .

I have not decided which way to go yet.  Good point though.
