I would not take any notice of image quality arguments. The 5d3 plus 24-70 is a combo used by pros, so the image quality is good enough.

Used by "pros" does not mean IQ is great, it merely means IQ is good enough for those pro's customers.

For studios shots that has no contrasty DR, 5D3 is adequate. For newspaper and low quality magazine printing, 5D3 is also adequate. For internet blogs showing 600 x 400 px current affair pictures, 5D3 is more than adequate.

I don't think the original poster is wanting the camera for studio use. He wants to shoot his kids. If anyone believes the 5diii is only suitable for blogs and low quality magazine work they probably should rely less on reviews and forums and DXO and more on real world results. Check stugibson.net or http://wolfgangglowacki.com.au/ or hobartimaging.com photographers who print large images for sale, shoot for high quality magazine and all bar one (myself a99 rx1) own and use the 5d3. Its image 'scores' may not be as high scoring as a Nikon or Sony rx1 but it's still a very good camera.
