I shoot a 5D MkII for portraiture and commercial work and a 7D for wildlife. If the 5D MkIII was essentially a full-frame 7D, I'd be pretty happy.
That means porting over to the 5D a few key features - more AF points with the faster autofocus, 8 FPS (12 would be better), the MUCH improved power switch, multiple selectable grids for the viewfinder and the ability to use the pop-up flash to command Canon flashes remotely.
Of course, I'd like to retain (or even improve) the 5D MkII's excellent low light performance.
And why not add a second shutter release that would fall below your shooting finger when the camera is held in portrait orientation?
To really round out the feature set, how about adding a Pocket Wizard compatible transmitter?
These things are all within reach and would make the 5D MkIII an outstanding wildlife camera!
