Julia 5D3 and 5DSR are fine with PS6... never underestimate just how good the recent versions of Canon DPP are. The best way is to either develop in DPP and then transfer to PS for layers etc, or convert with Adobe DNG converter and open in PS if the files are too recent.   If you try the DPP route then after converting your file from RAW, just press CTRL+Shift+P ( or go to tools transfer to Photoshop ) and take your 16 bit tiff right into PS6 . THis way you avoid 8 bit banding processing further in PS.  In fact Canon's XPS driver for the Pro 1000 is so good I never transfer to 8 bit, other than to send to a client  as a finished file.

The 5DSR used with care and good lenses will give you more quality than you could want, that is unless you want over 800 iso, then try the 5D3. As a pair they work well because they are built on the same body and feel like twins.

Gear ... what I need to get the job done , after all you don't see mechanics listing their brand of spanner as a qualification .
