Apparently DPP from canon is not processing the RAW files correctly (they're coming out way too soft according to the-digital-picture.com) and is completely unreliable as of right now until Canon makes a fix.
Yeah, I just saw that review today. It makes DPP look utterly useless. I tried it out yesterday because I wanted to see how the new DLO feature works (it's very exciting, by the way), but I happened to use some older files, not one from the 5D3. So I didn't notice any softness problems. I'll have to open one up and see if what that review said about DPP is true.

Edit: Egads!! I just opened the same 5D3 file in both DPP and ACR. No comparison. Yeah, DPP is useless for these files. Canon needs to issue an update.

Since European cities are more compact, I WA lens would probably suit you very well. But if you're going to use the 5DII, 24mm, I think, is pretty wide on a FF camera body. Personally, I use the combo of my 5DII and 24-105 as my walking around lens. Plus, with having IS on the lens, it gives you greater flexibility if you're shooting in low light or at dusk (especially since it seems you're not bringing a tripod).

Overall, I would go with option #2.

So this is your sneaky way of telling us you upgraded to a 5DIII?
Let me help you get rid of that awful 5DII

I think that cat came out of the bag pretty clearly when VirtualRain started a thread asking who all had upgraded to the 5D Mark III.

Oops, missed that one. Perhaps because I was avoiding all the happy stories tempting me to upgrade too.

I see you have made your choice, and I think it's a good one. I have been to Paris and Rome several times; you'll have a great time. I agree with your choice not to take a flash, but you might want to think about a mini-tripod. One of the great joys is walking around Paris at night, and a little extra stability is sometimes needed for a great shot. There's always something to set it on. I am a huge believer in traveling very light and didn't take one my first trip. The nice thing is that when I decided I needed one, Paris is full of photo shops. Have a great trip.
