well TBH man they don't get much cheaper that $500 or so... why not just keep it since you know where its been, how its been treated and how much its been used?
Like I said, is the $500 really making or breaking the 5d3 purchase? You'll want a backup or even a 2nd body with a 2nd lens when you shoot stuff like races - especially if you're doing it for pay eventually.
