Canon EOS 5D MkIII - help


I presently have a canon EOS 5D MKII which has been a great camera and generally I am happy with it. I was looking at the new MKIII and read up on some of the camera descriptions and features on http://www.jessops.com/online.store/...4404/show.html
Does anyone have any thoughts on whether it's worth moving to the MKIII? There are a differences see http://www.ephotozine.com/article/canon-eos-5d-mk-ii-vs-mk-iii-18643 but nothing really stands out as being one thing that should make you buy the camera.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I own my 5D Mark II for almost 3 1/2 years now and I already ordered the Mark III a while back. I looked at it this way. I listed all the things I really did not like in the 5D MII (though not many, but a few) and then compared it with the improvements of the MIII. Almost all of my points were met, so the decision to order was an easy one. I still like to see the mirror-lock-up function on the top dial and not burried in the menus. I always hated that part on Canon cameras, but you can't have it all. To me, just the improved AF(along with the higher burst rate) is worth the upgrade, that alone makes it such a better camera.

I've seen some images using the 5DMk3 and the new image sensor is quite amazing, at high ISO they are clean and crisp!

Ad to that the much improved burst rate, you've got to go for it!
