Dude. Have you even used a 5D3 yet? It's much much more than just an AF upgrade. Whether it's worth the money to you is for you to decide, but from what you've said, I'd say it's a freaking bargain. Can your 5D2 shoot at six frames per second for nearly forty frames before slowing down? Does it shoot at six fps at all and how long before that puny ass buffer is filled. And that AF upgrade is not only way faster and far more accurate, it focuses in almost no light at all. Instead of emphasizing what...Show more →
Played with a 5d3 about a month ago. I don't want 6 fps. I didn't find the AF to be faster, and if it was, it wasn't really noticeable to me. I almost never fill the buffer on my 5d2s. Problem is, the things I need it for - better AF, better shadow recovery, better high ISO - it only has one of those in any way that would make a difference for my photography. That's not worth the nearly $2000 cost to upgrade per-camera. I still get plenty (though nowhere near 100%) of in-focus images with my 5d2s that have shadow lifting roughly equal to the 5d3 and very similar high ISO output...I would pay $1000-$1200 for the upgrade perhaps, but not $1900-$2000. That's just stupid absurd to me.
I still wish I could mount Canon lenses on a Nikon camera...
