One other option would be to shop for a 300 2.8 non-IS and a 1D3. Probably be a few hundred over $3000 total. Of course there are the usual considerations about buying an old 300 such as repairs, but these can still be done through places like Midstate. This would get you a killer sports setup.
But, if you really need the high ISO capabilities or just a new body to help you get creative, then maybe the 5D3 is your ticket.
For me, it would come down to weighing up whether a 1-series, a 300, or a FF fulfills the most of my needs at the moment.
I too remember this dilemma when I was a high school student (about 5 years ago!)... back then it was about affording a lowly 1D2!
Ive used the IS version a few times and love it.
The non IS scares me that it cant be repaired.
My 17-35 2.8, is non canon repairable and it bothers me a lot. Im always being super careful with it.
