I have only used the 756PROIII, PROII, but have a PRO, and a FT1000MKV (Field), 
with Inrad Roofing Filter.
Depending on the contest, I am sometimes a casual and sometime serious contest 
operator. I can only say from my experience the FT1000MKV , for ease of 
operation and receive sensitivity and selectivity, DSP performance, it blows 
the PRO and the PROII away. 
I would suggest that you go to www.eham.net then "Product Reviews" and read 
through the recent Reviews on the IC-7800, as some favorably compare it to the 
FT1000MKV. Also see the IC756PROIII and FT1000MKV (Field) reviews.
I can honestly say I have never regretted buying the FT1000MKV, but often 
regretted buying the PRO.

PS) and the Icom 756PROIII. Any idea which would be
better for causal contesting and more serious DXing? 
Could possibly consider the PROII also, but the PROIII
sounds like it has some very nice improvements.
