Detailed review
The Canon 5D Mark III is a Canon 5D Mark II with the AF system of the top-of-th-line 1Dx and the speed and ergonomics of the 7D. Right now this is probably the most balanced professional/prosumer DSLR with a removable battery grip out there.

Unless you have very specific reasons to look at a different model - e.g. price considerations (chose the Mk II or a 6D) or the need for an ultra high pixel count (chose the D800) - this is the DSLR for you.
