The LCD is rather useless for reviewing shots, I use it purely for histograms.

+1 same here

here's my advice: pretend the camera doesn't have an LCD. :)

I'm not debating jumping ship for the LCD alone.

This might sound dumb and greedy, but I want something that will retain its value. Don't wanna be left behind, monetarily speaking. Plus the extra features of the D700 are quite nice.

Honestly, the 5D is still holding its own in terms of IQ. I think its IQ is way better than the new 5DIII. I have no intention of selling this body.

I agree, it does hold its own in terms of image quality. But it's not like the 5DII or the D700 don't hold their own, right?

I've seen the sample images, can you give source links to the IQ being similar to 7D?

I doubt MKIII is going to be the same as 7D in IQ, but I'm not sure if MKII is any better at ISO100 compare to classic.

SOOC, ISO100, 100mm, F2.

I don't need mega ISO for portraits of my kids and family friends, but I need noise free pictures at low ISO. And small LCD means less chances to broke it.

Comforting... :-P

I'm better off sticking with my 60D until I have things like money. I really need to repeat this in my head over and over again. Selling off my 60D and 18-135mm would not provide me with enough money to buy a 5Dc and an EF lens with comparable reach. Especially since the 60D has super glue on it where I accidentally glued my finger to the camera one time while trying to glue the rubber grip back on. :oops:

I guess you could say I was glued to my camera last year (which isn't far from the truth after I found out how much I ran the shutter count up)/
