5D-III, does this me entry level FF on horizon?

Hey, I'm not saying, I'm just saying that the 5D mkIII with it's advanced focusing system and high price tag means that canon is creating a spot (or vacuum) for a budget entry level FF dSLR to fit into it's line up.

That could be the 5D Mark II, which stays in the line up and reportedly gets a price cut to under $2000 (US).

doesnot seem like it

i gues it will be mre clear once the futue of the old 5D2 is decided, and if they will stop producing it or not

so far, the 5D2 is the low cost entry level FF SLR

No, it could not, not with its mediocre AF system ...

Its mediocre AF is precisely why it would be Canon's entry level FF model.
