5D Mk II accessories not compatible with 5D Mk III

I have a 5D Mk II and a nice collection of lenses and accessories.  I am upgrading to a Mk III.  Can anyone tell me which lenses (if any) and which accessories are not compatible with the Mk III?  Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that the two cameras use different battery grips.  Remember, L-Brackets are typically designed to fit the Canon battery grips, not the 3rd party grips, which must be shaped ever so slightly differently from Canon's.

Assuming they are all Canon, they should all work.

Thanks.  Someone once told me the battery grip wasn't compatible, and I was concerned about my L-bracket for tripod work (which I can test in the store).  Just wanted to double check.  Thanks again!

Thanks so much!

I might have spoke too soon. The 5DMIII takes the BGE-11, not the BGE-6 of the MII.

 

It might be best to be specific.
